Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie in the history of late antiquity, with particular interests in early Christianity and the history of ideas. My PhD was on the political theology of Ambrosiaster, an anonymous Christian writer of the later fourth century. My current major research project is on ideas and images of the Devil in late antiquity; I have also pursued side topics on panegyric, late Latin commentary - especially Macrobius - and Polybius. Future plans include tackling demons in early Christianity, and the problems of anonymity and pseudonymity in antiquity.
