Amy Balogh

Visiting Lecturer

We are pleased to welcome back Amy Balogh as Visiting Lecturer in Judaism. Amy recently received her Ph.D. in the Study of Religion, with a concentration in Biblical Interpretation, from 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 Near Eastern studies.

Amy’s forthcoming book, tentatively titled “Idolizing Moses: The Status of Yahweh’s Mediator Among the Idols of Ancient Mesopotamia," 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, Moses.

Amy also works as Program Manager at the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver, where she develops educational programming, including digital education materials. She is also a regular contributor and editor for Logos Bible Software.
