Research Focus

Dr. Ascough is currently researching the dynamics of religious interaction and community development in small religious associations in the Greco-Roman world. His project is part of a larger movement that is exploring modern theories of Christian origins. In a separate line of research, Prof. Ascough has an ongoing interest in how religion intersects with film, particularly in terms of mythmaking, worldview, and the creation of self or group identity through this artistic medium.
