AboutI am a PhD candidate in the Committee on the Study of Religion (New Testament and Early Christianity subfield) at Harvard University.
My current course and research interests include the historiographical invention and development of the “Apostolic Fathers,” discourses of heresy and orthodoxy in antiquity, Greek and Coptic papyrology, ancient constructions of ethnic and religious difference, and translation of late ancient and Byzantine apocryphal texts.
I am in the early stages of my dissertation, focusing on the Shepherd of Hermas.
