Gildas Hamel

Gildas Hamel

Professor Hamel is working on a history of religious representations in Hellenistic and Roman Palestine and the notion of monotheism. He examines recent histories of monolatry and monotheism and accounts of religious mediations, asking whether monotheism can be explained as a response to the Babylonian and Persian empires, or as an episode in the cultural borrowing and translation of religious stories and practices.

Gildas Hamel is a S.O.E. Lecturer in History.

This colloquium is presented by the Center for Cultural Studies, with staff support from the Institute for Humanities Research.
