Lou Swift graduated from Johns Hopkins in 1963 and joined UK’s faculty as the chair of the newly reformed Department of Classics in 1970. His research interests focus on the study of early Christianity, including the issue of war and peace in late antiquity, and the relationship between religion and politics in America. Though he officially retired in 2001, he continues to teach an undergraduate course on the connection between religion and politics in America.
