Honorary staff

My research interests include Greek oracles; Graeco-Roman, Egyptian and (more broadly) Mediterranean religions (especially in late antiquity), ancient philosophy (especially Plato and Neoplatonism), late Roman and late antique history, literature and culture, ancient literary theory and book culture, and the history of religions. I am particularly interested in the intersections and connections between philosophy, religion and literature in late antiquity. I have written a monograph on the roles of divination and theurgy in Neoplatonism in late antiquity. My current projects include work on the roles of oracles and oracle-collections in the ancient Mediterranean and work on the female readers of Plato.
