More on the Speaker
Professor Rob Kugler teaches courses on Jewish and Christian origins, including courses on both the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible and New Testament. His special area of research deals with the interface between the sociohistorical contexts of early Judaism and Christianity and the religions’ interpretation of their received texts and traditions. He is particularly engaged with interpretive traditions in the Dead Sea Scrolls and in Jewish and Christian literature from Greco-Roman Egypt, as well as with the documentary evidence for Judean life in Hellenistic Egypt. He is the author or co-editor of five books and numerous essays in edited volumes. He has also published articles in journals such as Revue de Qumran, Dead Sea Discoveries, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, Journal of Biblical Literature, and Zeitschrift für alttestamentliche Wissenschaft. He also has an article forthcoming in the Proceedings of the XXV International Congress of Papyrology.
