Research interests

Papyrology, Graeco-Roman Egypt, Early Christianity, and Late Antiquity.

Peter van Minnen is a papyrologist and ancient historian specializing in Greek documentary texts from Hellenistic and Roman Egypt. He also covers Greek literary and Coptic papyri and Greek and Latin inscriptions, and is primarily interested in the society, economy and culture of the Roman Empire, including Early Christianity and Late Antiquity.

He is currently working on two monographs: one focuses on the Egyptian city of Hermopolis in the Roman period, and the other on the economy of Roman Egypt. As a sequel to the monograph on Roman Hermopolis, he plans to edit the archive of a family of athletes from that town. He has also worked on the local context of early Christianity in Egypt, and intends to publish a collection of essays on various sites from Alexandria to Philae. In addition, he is editing a corpus of Greek documentary papyri from various collections, notably Ann Arbor and Vienna.
