AnneMarie Luijendijk joined the Princeton faculty in 2006. A scholar of New Testament and Early Christianity and a papyrologist, she is interested in the social history of early Christianity, using both literary texts and documentary sources. Her book Greetings in the Lord: Early Christians and the Oxyrhynchus Papyri (Harvard University Press, 2008) investigates papyrus letters and documents pertaining to Christians in the ancient Egyptian city of Oxyrhynchus in the pre-Constantinian period. She currently works on two books. One, provisionally entitled Forbidden Oracles, entails the publication of a 6th century Coptic manuscript containing Christian oracular answers. The other is a book on Christian manuscripts and material culture. Luijendijk specialized in New Testament at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and received her doctorate from Harvard University, The Divinity School, in 2005. She won an American Fellowship from the American Association of University Women for the 2008-2009 academic year and is the Melancthon W. Jacobus University Preceptor in Religion for 2009-2010.
