The crisis of Christianity in the fifth century: Imperial and religious ideology in Zosimus’s Ἱστορία Νέα
My research primarily focuses on the fifth century pagan historian Zosimus and his "New History". This project aims to explore Zosimus and his intellectual milieu at the turn of the century, especially in regards to the relationship between religions and state in an increasingly christianised empire.
I am also interested in examing late antiquity through a wider global and Eurasian perspective, and adopting comparative approaches towards the study of the western and eastern halves of the Eurasian continent between the period 300-700.
I did my undergraduate studies in Singapore, Nanyang Technological University before coming to Oxford, where I obtained my MPhil in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies (2017-19).
