PolegEyal Poleg is a lecturer in material history at Queen Mary University of London.  He has worked extensively on the medieval and early modern Bible, exploring how its material culture reflects religious and social history.  This combination first arose from a BA in history and photography and an MA in Comparative Religion at Jerusalem. A doctorate in London and a subsequent British Academy postdoctoral fellowship in Edinburgh have nurtured this passion, and opened new directions for investigation.
