UrbRel podcasts: Corinna Riva & Harry Maier
In this week’s edition of our podcasts Corinna Riva (UCL), the 202/21 Distinguished Fellow at the Max Weber Centre and member of our UrbRel research group, talks to Harry Maier about his research and the books and music he’d take to that island out at sea. Harry Maier is professor of New Testament and Early Christian Studies at the Vancouver School of Theology and last came to Erfurt in the summer of 2022 as a visiting fellow to the UrbRel group.
Among his recent publications are two articles co-written with Emiliano R Urciuoli, also a member of the UrbRel group:
- In 2020, ‘Urban Religion at the Neighbourhood Level in the Roman Empire: Christ Religion as Case Study‘ (Religion in the Roman Empire 2020, 6:1, 3-19)
- in 2022, ‘Death in Smyrna: the Martydom of Polycarp as urban event‘ (Mortality, 27:2, 171-187)
