During her time as Scholar-in-Residence  Dr. Graham is consulting the Burke Library’s considerable holdings in early Christianity in order to complete revisions of  ‘Zealous for the Covenant’: Irenaeus and the Covenants of Israel, to be published by Peeters Publishers. Its rich resources are also supporting her continuing work in drafting a manuscript,  Jerusalem: Jews, Christians, and Sacred Places, which addresses Jerusalem’s Jewish and Christian sacred monuments and memorials and their role in the developing polemic between Christians and Jews in late antiquity.
