About

I am a PhD student in Religion (New Testament and Early Christianity) at Harvard University. I graduated from Yale Divinity School with a Master’s degree in Bible and St. Olaf College with a bachelor’s degree in Religion, Classics, and Ancient Studies. My current course and research interests include constructions of authorship and attribution in antiquity, the Nag Hammadi codices, discourses of “fake/forgery,” the rhetoric of “heresy/orthodoxy,” textual criticism, contemporary uses of the “historical Jesus,” and issues surrounding cultural heritage in antiquities markets.
