  • Dr Jonathan Zecher

    I am a theologian and historian of religion. I work in the Centre for Biblical and Early Christian Studies in the Modes of Knowing program. My research is focused on the emergence and logic of monastic confessional practices in Late Antiquity, in dialogue with medical-philosophical psycho-physiological theory, diagnostic techniques, and therapeutic strategies.

    More broadly, I am interested in the spiritual traditions of Eastern Orthodox spirituality, ancient medicine, and identity-formation in eastern monasticism.

    Before coming to Melbourne I taught Greek, Latin and "Great Books" (Classics, philosophy, literature) in the Honors College at the University of Houston for six years.
