Fields of interest

- Legislation in the Roman world
- Greek and Latin literature and culture
This project is embedded in the research group “History and Culture of Ancient Judaism and Early Christianity” (supervised by prof. dr. J.K. Zangenberg, Leiden University). My research will focus on the way in which Christian and Jewish groups were embedded in, and interacted with, the Roman Imperial legal system. In doing so, it will investigated not only to what extent regional differences played a part in the treatment of these groups, but also how they fit in the wider context of Roman legislation on religious groups.
