AboutJeremiah Coogan is a PhD candidate in New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of Notre Dame, where he researches and writes at the intersections of Gospel reading, material texts, and literary theory. He is a 2019–2021 Junior Fellow in the Andrew W. Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography at Rare Book School (University of Virginia). His work focuses on late ancient paratexts and how they shape and reflect early Christian reading practices. Drawing on the range of theoretical insights known as material philology, he is intrigued by ancient textual technologies of excerpting, anthologizing, multilingualism, and commentary.
