Dissertation: "An Alternative History of the Church: A Study of Two Lost Arian Historians"
Abstract: This dissertation explores a collection of fragments belonging to unknown dissident Christian historians of the fourth century. By a detailed analysis of the fragments, potential authors are identified and characteristics of the nascent genre of ecclesiastical history are evaluated and placed within the social context of the Late-Antique Middle East.
