Welcome, Anne Kreps

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.
