Laura Nasrallah is Associate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Harvard University’s Divinity School. Her research and teaching bring together New Testament and early Christian literature with the archaeological remains of the Mediterranean world, and often engage issues of colonialism, gender, status, and power.
Her published books include An Ecstasy of Folly: Prophecy and Authority in Early Christianity and Christian Responses to Roman Art and Architecture: The Second-Century Church Amid the Spaces of Empire. She is also co-editor, with Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, of Prejudice and Christian Beginnings: Investigating Race, Gender, and Ethnicity in Early Christian Studies (Fortress Press, 2009) and, with Charalambos Bakirtzis and Steven J. Friesen, of From Roman to Early Christian Thessalonik?: Studies in Religion and Archaeology (forthcoming, distributed through Harvard University Press). Among her current projects are a book on archaeology and the letters of Paul and a commentary on 1 Corinthians for the Hermeneia series.
