Professor Judith Lieu FBA
About this Fellow
Judith Lieu studied theology at the Universities of Durham and Birmingham, where she undertook a PhD in New Testament on the Second and Third Letters of John. Before taking up the Lady Margaret's Chair in Divinity at the University of Cambridge (2007), she taught at the Queen's College Birmingham, at King's College London (where she was Professor of New Testament 1999-2007), and at Macquarie University (Sydney). Within the New Testament she specialises in the Johannine Literature, but much of her research and writing has also been focussed on the emergence of early Christianity and its literature in the Jewish and Greco-Roman contexts in the second century CE. She is the Gender Champion for the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Cambridge University, and is much involved in the promotion of gender equality in support and progress. She is a Methodist Local Preacher and has filled a number of roles within the Methodist Church. She is a keen walker, in the hills when possible.
