About

As an MA candidate, my focus will be on the theory and practice of religion in the ancient and medieval world. I believe that religion is one of the most important areas of ancient and medieval life. It is also one of the most fascinating. Religion in the ancient and medieval world  took on a significance that far exceeds what many of us experience today. All areas of life were in some way tied to religion. It is my goal to learn and eventually to teach about the complexities of religious history that are too often lost in popular understandings and biases. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Richard Greenfield.
