  5. Senior Research Fellow / Research Fellow in Early Christianity

    The Australian Catholic University is seeking researchers of outstanding potential and demonstrated achievement to contribute to the research of the Centre for Biblical and Early Christian Studies. Researchers will be expected to contribute to a major five-year project, Modes of Knowing and the Ordering of Knowledge in Early Christianity. This international project, led by Prof. Lewis Ayres (ACU/Durham) and four others from ACU, Durham and Notre Dame, investigates ‘modes of knowing’ constructed by Greek, Latin and Syriac Christians c.100-700 CE. A particular focus is the manner in which developing Christian thought was shaped by classical intellectual discourses (such as grammar, philosophy, rhetoric and medicine), institutions, social practices, and material culture.

    This project builds on research across the Centre in areas such as the social and cultural history of early Christianity, the cultural and intellectual transformation of Classical antiquity, strategies of Christian identity formation, and intersections between Christianity and ancient philosophy, rhetoric, medicine, and education. For further information on the project and Centre, please see the Position Description.
