What's your jam?

Recommended Posts

Long-time lurker, just curious what everybody on here is interested in. I'm super interested in the Greco-Roman cultic background to the New Testament, incorporating things like divinatory practice, the cultic roles and experiences of women, and all that jazz. What lights your Religious Studies/Theology/Divinity fire?

For me it's the Hebrew Bible, specifically intertextuality, reading the HB as an ANE document, ancient Israelite history, and early apocalyptic.

Theology and race, specifically the work of the Duke School (J. Kameron Carter, Willie James Jennings, and Brian Bantum). Hoping to do something that combines race, liturgy, sacraments, christology, and theological anthropology.

I'm curious about the religious experience among gay, black men. I am curious as to how their lived experiences problematize christian theology and other religious ideologies. Also, I'm curious as to how the church as a social institution can facilitate positive and negative effects on black, gay men.

My current undergraduate research in studying how gay, young black men interprete scripture and how that interpretation influences their sexual orientation.

Christian origins and the New Testament. Heading more towards the early second century with the legacy of Paul and the rise of Marcionism.

I'm also interested in patristic adaptations of Greek philosophy and how those affect Eastern Orthodoxy. I'm hoping to specifically focus on the Cappadocians (specifically, Gregory of Nyssa) and maybe even Denys, Maximus, and John of Damascus.
