Amy Balogh

Visiting Lecturer

We are pleased to welcome back Prof. Amy Balogh as Visiting Lecturer in Judaism. Amy received her Ph.D. (2016) in the Study of Religion with a concentration in Biblical Interpretation from the Joint Doctoral Program of the University of Denver and Iliff School of Theology. In addition to her knowledge of Judaism and the Hebrew Bible, she comes to Colorado College with experience in archaeology, historical and archaeological conservation, and ancient Near Eastern studies.

Amy’s forthcoming book (Fortress Academic Press, 2018), Moses among the Idols: Mediators of the Divine in the Ancient Near East, 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 Lexham Press.
