Hospitality in the Hebrew Bible.

In 2016, I spent 11 months at the University of Helsinki as a visiting researcher to participate in the project Ritual and Early Christianity. An international project working on ritual innovation and continuity in Early Christianity. My specific part of the project was an analysis of the tomb as communicative space.
