Sarcasm in Paul's Letters


Subject area and speciality

New Testament specialists:

Sarcasm in the Letters Attributed to Paul

Research Interests

My current project consists of an analysis of sarcasm in the New Testament letters attributed to Paul. Using a critical interaction with both ancient and modern theory on irony and sarcasm as a starting point, my work seeks to address Paul's use of sarcasm on linguistic, exegetical and rhetorical levels. Broader research interests include:

  • Pauline rhetoric
  • Early Christianity/New Testament Studies
  • Humour Studies
  • Lucian
