Assistant Professor of Religion
22 Ashby House
Todd Berzon came to Bowdoin College in July 2014. He studies Judaism and Christianity in the ancient world, especially the relationship between them. He teaches courses on the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, Theories and Methods in the Study of Religion, and the Religions of Late Antiquity. His dissertation, which he is currently revising for publication, analyzed the ways in which late antique Christians developed their own style of ethnographic writing. In addition, he is interested in the history of anti-Judaism, the reception history of the Bible (especially in the early modern period), Victorian anthropology, and religious law.
