About

What do I do at Mainz University? Immerse myself in the culture of the Mediterranean world and interpret the New Testament against this background. I like to turn challenging topics until they become interesting for students or a wider audience. I enjoy preparing issues for others in a creative and multimedial way.

Now also on Mastodon.
