Ancient History, Late Antiquity
Statement: The subject of my research is church history and historiography of late antiquity. I am focusing on the role of bishops in Greek and Syriac sources and on the use of the word parrhesia (frankness). This word is unique as it has a long history going back to the Athenian democracy before later developing into an important monastical and episcopal virtue.
