PhD title: The Text and Manuscripts of the Byzantine Apostolos Tradition
Supervisor: Professor David Parker
PhD Biblical Studies


My research focuses on the Medieval Greek manuscript tradition of the Praxapostolos, which presents liturgical readings of Acts, the Pauline corpus and the Catholic Letters. The focus is on using digital methods to collect and analyse textual data, while setting the manuscripts in their historical, liturgical and social contexts. My other areas of interest include Greek and Latin palaeography, Late Antique and Byzantine Studies, and Biblical hermeneutics.
