Dr. Kozitza Dean earned a D.Phil. in New Testament (Oxford); an MA (Notre Dame); and a BA (Baylor). Her research engages the vitality of Scripture in multiple interpretive spheres within Jewish and Christian antiquity. She has focused on understanding intersections between New Testament texts, their early reception, and ancient visual and auditory cultures. Dr. Kozitza Dean is passionate about providing formation in the theological practice of fides quaerens intellectum (“faith seeking understanding”), and equipping students with wide-ranging skills in the interpretation of ancient texts.
