About the Author

Laura Suzanne Lieber is professor of religious studies at Duke University. Her primary area of research is synagogue poetry (“piyyut”) from Late Antiquity and the Byzantine period. She examines these works from a variety of perspectives, including literary, performative, and comparative (particularly with Christian hymnography in Syriac and Greek), and also as a genre of early Jewish biblical interpretation. In recent years, she has begun to integrate the study of material culture into her analysis of these literary works, as part of taking a more fully “contextual” approach to literary analysis. She holds a B.A. from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, an M.A. from Hebrew Union College, and a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
