I study Roman history from the period of the late Republic to Late Antiquity, particularly the entangled histories of religion and intellectual life. I find myself particularly preoccupied by questions of religious change, the relationship between ideas and social institutions, and the sociology of knowledge. These interests have led me to also write on the history of Judaism in antiquity and the history of ideas in early modernity.
