Jeremy Steinberg is a second-year student in Ancient Mediterranean Religions. His research interests, which he situates at the junction of Religious Studies and Classics, focus on Jewish literature of the late Hellenistic and early Imperial periods (a category in which he includes texts traditionally studied under the umbrella of Early Christianity). In particular, his research emphasizes the ways in which ancient Israelite concepts and stories took on new forms and meanings when embraced and retold by people inculcated in Greco-Roman cultural ideas and practices. He is a recipient of the Margaret Schoenfeld Falk Graduate Fellowship in Jewish Studies.
