Elaine Pagels

Princeton University

Elaine Pagels, Harrington Spear Paine Foundation Professor of Religion at Princeton University, will write a book that will place the New Testament Book of Revelation in its first century historical context and explore its enduring cultural influence. She will examine how the early Christian movement in Rome was an early example of a conscious effort to separate religion and politics, a phenomenon which, she argues, has been extremely rare throughout all but our most recent cultural history.
