Amy Balogh

Visiting Lecturer

We are pleased to welcome back Amy Balogh as Visiting Lecturer for the 3rd consecutive year. Amy is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in the Study of Religion, with a concentration in Biblical Interpretation, at the University of Denver and Iliff School of Theology, Joint Doctoral Program. In addition to her knowledge of Judaism and the Hebrew Bible, she comes to Colorado College with extensive experience in archaeology, historical and archaeological conservation, and ancient Semitic languages.

Amy’s forthcoming dissertation, "Circumcising the Mouth of Moses: The Idolatrous Function of God’s Mouthpiece in Ancient Israel," explores the intersection of ancient popular religion and biblical narrative in a way that offers a new reading of one of the Abrahamic Traditions’ most beloved and revered figures.

Amy also works as Program Coordinator at the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver, where she develops public education programs, including digital education materials. She is also a regular contributor for Logos Bible Software and Macat International Ltd.
