I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed as an associate fellow at the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem for 2022-2023.
My project is titled the Archaeology and History of Christianity at Hippos. Specifically, I will be testing and refining a method proposed by Bernard Mulholland for assessing the architectural design of and changes to Late Antique church structures and then applying that model to the excavated structures at Hippos. This work expands on the article I wrote for Michmanim (27:18-28).
In addition, I will use time in Israel to meet with colleagues from the Hippos Excavation to plan a book-length project on archaeological, liturgical and regional information from the Late Antique period at Hippos and its implications for the history of Christianity at the site.
Specific details are still being arranged.
