Bradley K. Storin graduated from the Department of Religious Studies at IU in 2012 and, in 2014, took a position at Louisiana State University, where he is assistant professor of the History of Christianity and director of Religious Studies. At LSU, he teaches courses on subjects such as the New Testament, early Christianity, religious violence, and monasticism. His research focuses on Christianity in late antiquity, with particular attention to the ways that Christian authors in the 4th and 5th centuries constructed religious and personal identities within contemporary literary modes and genres.
He has published several articles in domestic and international journals, along with three books – Self-Portrait in Three Colors: The Epistolary Autobiography of Gregory of Nazianzus (University of California Press, 2019); Gregory of Nazianzus’s Letter Collection (University of California Press, 2019); and, with co-editors Edward J. Watts and Cristiana Sogno, Late Antique Letter Collections: A Critical Introduction and Reference Guide (University of California Press, 2017). Additionally, he is a series editor and primary translator for the Cambridge Edition of Early Christian Writings, which has published two volumes featuring a thematic assortment of Christian texts from late antiquity – The Cambridge Edition of Early Christian Writings, Volume 1: God and The Cambridge Edition of Early Christian Writings, Volume 2: Practice (Cambridge University Press, 2017).
“IU’s Department of Religious Studies is outstanding and I consider myself fortunate to have learned the academic trade there: the warm community of scholars there not only guided my pedagogical development, but also laid the interdisciplinary foundation of history, philology, and religion on which my future research program would be constructed.”
