den Dulk, Matthijs
Matthijs den Dulk is currently a Ph.D. candidate in New Testament and Early Christian Literature at the University of Chicago. He is writing a dissertation on the “invention of heresy,” which explores questions around when, why, and how early Christians developed the concept of heresy. Matt’s work is focused on the Christian literature of the first two centuries AD, but he is also very interested in early rabbinic literature and Greek intellectual and rhetorical culture of the imperial period. He has published articles in the Journal of Biblical Literature, Novum Testamentum, New Testament Studies and Biblica, and previously taught courses at Northwestern University and at the University of Chicago.
