Andrew_Henry_PhotoAndrew M. Henry is a Ph.D student in the Graduate Division of Religious Studies specializing in Ancient Christianity (Origins to Late Empire) under Dr. David Frankfurter. Andrew’s research focuses on the popular and domestic religious activity of the eastern Mediterranean with a particular interest in the material evidence of these practices such as ritual space, magico-religious artifact assemblages, and apotropaic objects. Stemming from these interests, Andrew studies theoretical issues pertaining to the limitations and abilities of archaeology to interpret questions on domestic religious activity in Late Antiquity. A graduate from Messiah College, Andrew attended the University of Pennsylvania’s Post-Baccalaureate Program in Classical Languages and worked as a collections assistant at the U.Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology before coming to BU.
