Zachary Domach

Zachary Domach is a PhD Candidate (Late Antique Christianity) in the Department of Religion at Columbia University. His dissertation focuses on the role played by wisdom literature in the transmission and reception of the classical tradition among Christians. He is particularly interested in questions of meaning making, community formation, and identity construction arising from the intersection of paremiology and practice. He also writes on ancient education, early Christian music, and canon law. In addition to his textual research, he has excavated at the Sanctuary of the Great Gods (Samothrace, Greece) and Hadrian’s Villa (Tivoli, Italy).

The Columbia University Center for Teaching and Learning named Zachary the inaugural recipient of its Senior Fellowship in 2018-19.
