Brief Bio:
Broadly interested in the historical and comparative study of religion, Matt Jackson-McCabe specializes in the ancient Mediterranean world in general and early Christianity and early Judaism in particular. He is particularly interested in the way scholarly accounts of early Christianity and its relationship to Judaism changed in the wake of the Enlightenment era, and how they have continued to develop in critical scholarship through the present day. His publications include the books Jewish Christianity: The Making of the Christianity-Judaism Divide (Yale University Press, 2020), Logos and Law in the Letter of James (Brill, 2001; paperback edition: SBL, 2010) and Jewish Christianity Reconsidered (ed.; Fortress, 2007). He joined CSU's then-department of Religious Studies in January, 2008 as its Chairperson, having taught previously at Niagara University (2000-07), DePaul University (1999-2000), and Case Western Reserve University (1998-99).
