I am a cultural historian of religion in the ancient Mediterranean, working primarily in the late antique east. My research focuses on social performances (ritual practice, pilgrimage, homilies, and historiography) and competition. My current work examines constructions of conflict and mutilation in late antique Christian historical narratives.
