Post-Doctoral Researcher in Abrahamic Religions,
Faculty of Theology
Emmanouela Grypeou’s research in Oxford focuses on Christian and Jewish responses to the rise and expansion of Islam, as documented in apocalyptic writings of the 7th and 8th centuries. It further deals with theological and historical relations and interactions among the Abrahamic religions in Late Antiquity. Another aspect of her research examines transformation processes of specific religious traditions (such as dualistic or eschatological ideas and motifs) across different but related religious systems. Her research interests include Patristics, heresiology, biblical exegesis and Christian and Jewish pseudepigraphical literature, in the context of the religious history of Late Antiquity and particularly in the Christian East.
