dummyJane Evans is Professor of Art History. Her doctorate is from the University of Pennsylvania, and her research areas are Art of Ancient Rome, Art of Ancient Greece, History of Crafts (to the Industrial Revolution). During the summer she participate in an excavation of the small Gallo-Roman town of Javols, France, under the direction of Alain Ferdieres, Universite de Tours. Temple students join Dr Evans in the work.

Vasiliki Limberis is Professor of Religion. She received her doctorate from Harvard. Dr. Limberis is trained in the History of Ancient Christianity and is fascinated by the interplay of religious cultures -- pagan, Christian, Jewish -- in the first five centuries of the common era. Her teaching reflects a wide variety of themes, but invariably lands on the two most volatile centuries, the first and the fourth, when the power of the Roman state brings the most to bear on the varieties of religions in the Mediterranean. In addition, her teaching interests have expanded to include the visual arts of the period, iconography, sculptural arts, Roman painting, and mosaics. Dr. Limberis' main topic of research is the Cappadocian Fathers. She is currently researching the imbrication of "family" in Late Antiquity and Christianity.
