Candida Moss

CONGRATULATIONS TO PROFESSOR CANDIDA MOSS, who has joined the faculty of Theology and Religion at the University of Birmingham as Edward Cadbury Professor of Theology.

Her essays, often co-written with Joel Baden, at the Daily Beast and elsewhere have helped keep PaleoJudaica readers informed about many news stories involving biblical studies and related matters, most recently here.

She describes her research specialties as follows:
My work primarily focuses on ideas about martyrdom, death, suffering, and afterlife in the New Testament and literature of Early Christianity. I have additional interests in disability theory and theology, religion and public life, the Bible and education, and cultural heritage.
