    About

    Emma Wasserman is Professor of Religion at Rutgers University specializing in early Christian history. Her work focuses on Christian origins within the social, intellectual, and religious contexts of the ancient Mediterranean and especially on apocalypticism and cosmology, the Christian appropriation of ancient philosophy, and the social description of ancient intellectuals. Her published work treats intellectual discourses about the self and their use in the letters Paul, our earliest and best sources for Christianity. Her second book, which is forthcoming, treats apocalyptic expectations in the Paul's letters. 

    Wasserman holds a Ph.D. from Yale University in Religious Studies and a B.A. from Brown University. Her first book, The Death of the Soul in Romans 7: Sin, Death, and the Law in Light of Hellenistic Moral Psychology (Mohr Siebeck) was published in 2008.
