Research Areas

My main interest is the Greek Bible in the context of Hellenistic Judaism and its reception and transmission history. Furthermore, I am concerned with Eastern Christianity. My Habilitation Project is focused on King Solomon.


Having a special preference for paleography and codicology, I have undertaken several research stays. Moreover, I am currently working on three international research projects
