Alexis Torrance specializes in the field of Byzantine Theology. His work concentrates on monastic theology, sanctity, and the history of doctrine. He likewise has a strong interest in modern Eastern Orthodox thought and East-West relations. His first monograph is entitled Repentance in Late Antiquity: Eastern Asceticism and the Framing of the Christian Life, ca. 400–650. He recently co-edited an interdisciplinary volume on Individuality in Late Antiquity and is currently working on a monograph with the tentative title, Holy Persons: The Human Ideal in Byzantine Theology.
