Centre for Theology and Religious Studies

The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology | Lund University


Currently I am employed as lecturer at the Centre of Theology and Religious Studies at Lund University, where I teach Church and Mission studies. As a reflection of my interests I have been teaching courses about the rise of monasticism, liturgical embodiment and the Orthodox churches in Sweden and the Middle East. My research has primarily been focused on the early church, and I wrote my thesis about civic ideals in Greek saints’ stories. Between 2012-2015 I participated in the international research programme ”Early Monasticism and Classical Paideia”. Next to teaching and research I am also coordinating the joint master’s programme ”The Religious Roots of Europe”, which studies the early sources of Christianity, Judaism and Islam in a comparative perspective. I am also an active member in Collegium Patristicum Lundense and Sophia.
