Mark Vessey

Mark Vessey is Associate Professor of English at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. After completing his B.A. in English at Cambridge he studied Latin patristics and late Latin literature at the Sorbonne and obtained a doctorate in Literae Humaniores (Ancient History) at Oxford for a thesis on "Ideas of Christian Writing" in the later Roman Empire. His
main research interests are in the Christian literature of Latin Late Antiquity (especially Jerome and Augustine) and of the Northern European Renaissance and Reformation (especially Erasmus and England). He is co-editor of  The Limits of Ancient Christianity (1999), History,
Apocalypse, and the Secular Imagination: New Essays on Augustine's City of God (1999), and Holy Scripture Speaks: The Production and Reception of Erasmus' Paraphrases on the New Testament (forthcoming). Work in progress includes studies of Jerome's biblical scholarship in the context of European literary history and of Augustine's Confessions in relation to the ancient and modern novel. He held the Augustinian Endowed Chair in the Thought of St. Augustine at Villanova University in 2000.
