Annette Yoshiko Reed joined the Harvard Divinity School faculty in July 2022, having taught previously at New York University as a professor in the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and Department of Religious Studies. Her research spans Second Temple Judaism, early Christianity, and Jewish/Christian relations in Late Antiquity, with a special concern for retheorizing religion, identity, and difference. Reed’s latest book explores the beginnings of Jewish angelology and demonology.
Reed works in Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, and ancient Ethiopic, in addition to speaking English and Japanese. Much of Reed’s work focuses on forgetting: looking at documents that have been lost and found, and then trying to see early Jewish and Christian history through the lens of those recovered or neglected documents. She is the author of several books, including most recently, Jewish-Christianity and the History of Judaism and Demons, Angels, and Writing in Ancient Judaism.
- Jewish-Christianity and the History of Judaism (Fortress Press, 2022)
- Demons, Angels, and Writing in Ancient Judaism (Cambridge University Press, 2020)
- Enoch from Antiquity to the Middle Ages (with John C. Reeves, Oxford University Press, 2018)
- Fallen Angels and the History of Judaism and Christianity (Cambridge University Press, 2005)
