Ellen Muehlberger

IMG_2644Ellen Muehlberger is associate professor of Christianity in late antiquity at the University of Michigan, author of Angels in Late Ancient Christianity (Oxford, 2013), and a member of the translation team for The Cambridge Edition of Early Christian Writings. Her articles have been published in the Journal of Early Christian Studies, the Journal for the Study of Judaism in the Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman Periods, Church History, Past & Present, and Vigiliae Christianae. At work on a book treating a rather dark subject — tentatively titled The Moment of Reckoning: Imagined Death in Late Antiquity — she keeps her spirits high by cycling and kayaking in the pleasant peninsula. For honesty about the process of writing, optimism about the humanities, retweeted calls for papers, and occasional cat pictures, you can follow her on Twitter @emuehlbe.
