Doctoral Student, Greek & Roman History
Tiggy graduated from Georgetown University in 2010 with an A.B. in history and classics. Her senior honors thesis, Educating Christianity: A Look at St. Basil's "Address to Young Men," as well as a smaller project for which she won Georgetown's McKay medal, “Befriending Christ: The Redefinition of Amicitia in Paulinus of Nola's Carmen XI”, both explored the ways in which aristocratic cultural tropes informed contemporary Christian practices. Her research interests include cultural and social history of the elite in Late Antiquity, particularly rhetorical and philosophical education, as well as lay Christianity and the formation of Christian rituals, practices, and beliefs. She is currently reading for her preliminary examinations in the following three fields: Otium and Erudition in the Roman Empire, Plato's Academy and the Intersection of Greek Philosophy and Power (5th Century BCE - 5th Century CE), and Theoretical Approaches to Religion and the History of Early Christianity.
