Michael Petrin specializes in the history and theology of early Christianity. He is committed to teaching students how to think critically and how to engage with difficult texts. He also enjoys teaching students how to construct clear and compelling arguments. His favorite quotation about writing comes from Elie Wiesel's book Legends of Our Time: "Some writings [can] sometimes, in moments of grace, attain the quality of deeds."
