Celebrating Theology and Religious Studies Faculty from the University of Nottingham: Holger Zellentin

hqdefault

Dear Friends and Family,

Today I want to introduce you to another member of our faculty, Dr Holger Zellentin. While I’ve many kitchen conversations with Holger, he’s definitely one whose work I’m not very familiar with. However, his insights during seminars certainly show him to be an excellent thinker.

Holger, who teaches Jewish Studies, began his higher education career at the Université des Sciences Humaines de Strasbourg where he received a degree in Protestant theology. Holger went on to do two MAs at the University of Amsterdam focusing on Hebrew studies and literature. From Amsterdam, Holger went on to another MA at Princeton before doing his PhD in Religions of Late Antiquity and Program in the Ancient World, Department of Religion, again at Princeton. Holger was appointed to our faculty in January of 2011.

Holger’s primary research interests circle around early Christian and early Muslim era Judaism and the relationship between these three religions. Holger has also recently been given the AHRC Research Fellowship Jewish Christianity and the Quran. You can learn more about his work this project, here.
