Coordinator for Undergraduate Research Assistants
Andrew King is the Coordinator for Undergraduate Research Assistants at the NDIAS. He is a doctoral candidate in the Christianity and Judaism in Antiquity program at the University of Notre Dame. He specializes in the built environments and texts of Ancient Mediterranean religions. His research interests include the writings of Paul, Alexandrian allegoresis, apocalyptic literature, discourses about peace in antiquity, and intertextuality. He is currently creating a centralized database of biblical citations, inclusive of early Jewish and Christian readers, and the development of best practices in the field of biblical intertextuality for the counting and weighing of citations in large datasets. Through his research, he hopes to better understand the quantitative effect of the Bible among readers across time.
