Dr Martina Vercesi
- Research Assistant (Theology & Religious Studies)
I graduated in Classics at the Università Statale di Milano, where I began working in New Testament studies with research on textual criticism and the Synoptic Gospels. I completed my PhD in St Andrews (2022) with a thesis on the reception of Revelation 19–21 in the early North African Christian communities.
I am now a post-doctoral researcher for the ERC project Titles of the New Testament (TiNT), exploring paratextual features of the Gospels in Greek manuscripts.
Book of Revelation; Patristic literature; Synoptic Gospels (Gospel of Mark in particular); Latin New Testament; Textual Criticism, Manuscripts, and Paratexts.
