Dalibor Papoušek

Dalibor is an Assistant Professor at the Department for the Study of Religions, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic. His fields of interest include history of religions (early Christianity, Second Temple Judaism), comparative study of religions, spatiality in ancient religions, archaeology and network analysis. In the GEHIR project (A Generative Historiography of the Ancient Mediterranean: Modelling and Simulating the Diffusion of Religious Ideas and Forms of Behaviour), Dalibor is working on the MARLUK project (acronym for MARcionate and LUKan Christianity) which reconsiders the influence of the Jewish heritage in the spread of early Christianity throughout the Mediterranean. He hopes to find in mathematical and computational network modelling a way how to bridge the total lack of archaeological evidence in the formative period of Christianity.
