George F. Rambow received his BA in music from the University of North Texas and his MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary. Before coming to Princeton he worked as a music director at a non-denominational church in Texas and then served for four years as a youth mentor and part-time church history and theology instructor at a church-based theology institute in La Plata, Argentina. More recently, he has worked as a teaching assistant at Princeton Seminary and as a research specialist at Princeton University, where he also has held teaching assistantships in both the religion and history departments. His research interests include: conversion and the Christianization of the Roman Empire; the transmission of ideas, texts, and practices across cultural and linguistic boundaries (particularly, the early and medieval Christian reception of Greek imaginative literature); the formation of canons, both biblical and literary; and the development and function of hagiography in late antiquity and the middle ages. George is also a candidate for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church.
