Welcome, Anne Kreps
Please join us in welcoming Anne Kreps to the Religious Studies faculty beginning in Fall 2016.
Anne has been teaching for the past three years at Yale-NUS College in Singapore. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2013), with a specialization in Valentinianism and Gnosticism, and areas of expertise in both Judaism and Christianity of antiquity. She is in the process of turning her dissertation into a monograph entitled The Crucified Book: Sanctifying the Written Word from Valentinus to the Age of Constantine. Anne also is interested in new religious movements. Something that especially drew her to the job at the U of O was the fact that a contemporary Essene group makes its spiritual home just a few miles west of campus in Elmira, Oregon.
In the Fall she will be teaching REL 223:Intro to the Bible II and REL 414/514: Gospel of John.
