Dr. Garrick V. Allen

After completing my Ph.D. at the University of St Andrews (2015), I worked as a postdoctoral researcher on the ECM-Apk project at the Kirchliche Hochschule Wuppertal/Bethel, where I contributed to the production of a new Greek critical edition of the book of Revelation. From 2016 to 2020 I was Associate Professor in New Testament Studies at Dublin City University. I was appointed to the University of Glasgow in 2020 where I am now the Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism. My first book, “The Book of Revelation and Early Jewish Textual Culture” (Cambridge 2017), was awarded the Manfred Lautenschlaeger Award for Theological Promise 2019 and my essay “Monks, Manuscripts, Muhammad, and Digital Editions of the New Testament,” published also in a chapter in my book “Manuscripts of the Book of Revelation” (Oxford 2020), was awarded the Paul J. Achtemeier Award for New Testament Scholarship by the Society of Biblical Literature (2018). My most recent book is “Words are Not Enough: Manuscripts, Paratexts, and the Real New Testament“ (Eerdmans, 2024).
