Nathan Smolin received a BA in classical studies from Samford University in 2015, where, in his senior project, he explored the similarities in anti-sacrificial rhetoric between the Roman philosopher Lucretius and the early Christian apologist Minucius Felix. In 2017, he received a MA in classical studies from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His Master’s Thesis, under the advisement of Dr. Emily Baragwanath, was titled “Divine Vengeance in Herodotus’ Histories,” and explored the theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of the Greek historian Herodotus’ treatment of divinity in historical explanation. He is currently continuing his studies at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, pursuing a PhD in classical studies. His research interests include Greco-Roman philosophy and religion, the place of Early Christian religion and philosophy in the ancient world, and the complex relationship between Greek and Latin Christianity in Late Antiquity and beyond.
