Christopher Faraone

Christopher Faraone studies Ancient Greek poetry, religion, magic, and Near Eastern influences on early Greek culture. His forthcoming book, The Transformation of Greek Amulets in Roman Imperial Times (September 2017), further explores these research interests. His next two projects are on ritual genres in the Homeric epic and another on the catalogs in the Hesiodic Theogony. Faraone is the Frank and Gertrude Springer Professor in the Department of Classics
