Mark D. Letteney

Mark is an historian of Late Antiquity and a doctoral student at Princeton University. His interests cluster around elite Christians in the later Roman Empire, book historical approaches to cultural change, and the legislation of “orthodoxy” in Late Antiquity.

His dissertation, “A New Order of Books in the Theodosian Empire,” examines changes to documentary practice and readerly expectations across elite technical literature from the late fourth through the middle of the fifth century CE.

He is also a staff member and field archaeologist with the Jezreel Valley Regional Project, focusing on excavation of the Roman 6th Legion “Ferrata” castrum in Legio, Israel.
