New Testament and Early Christian Studies
Jonathan Lipnick is a student of Judaism and Christianity in late antiquity. Specifically, his focus is rabbinic and patristic literature composed in the urban centers of Palestine in the 3rd-7th centuries CE. Broadly, he is interested in the impact of interreligious polemic on the development of holy sites, the institution of pilgrimage, liturgy and popular religion. He has written on the themes of martyrdom and biblical exegesis in Talmudic and early Christian texts. Jonathan holds a BA from Indiana University and an MA from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
