Andreas-Christian Heidel is postdoctoral researcher and has an appointment at the “Internationale Hochschule Liebenzell”;

his contribution to the project is a monograph on Corinth. Jan Rüggemeier is Junior Professor at the University of Bonn and is currently completing his second book on the Christ groups in Rome. He designed the research project together with the Principal Investigator Benjamin Schliesser, who will write a study on the religious and social distinctives of early Christianity.
