Crawford Gribben

Professor of history, Queen's University Belfast

I am a cultural and literary historian whose work concentrates on the development and dissemination of religious ideas, especially in terms of apocalyptic and millennial thought, in the print cultures of Puritanism and evangelicalism.

My current projects include writing "Survival and resistance in evangelical America" (with Scott Spurlock, under contract to Oxford University Press).

I serve as co-editor of two series of monographs and edited collections entitled 'Christianities in the trans-Atlantic world, 1550-1800' (Palgrave Macmillan) and 'Scottish religious cultures' (Edinburgh Univeristy Press).

I directed the 'Radical Religion in the trans-Atlantic world, 1500-1800' project (funded by the Irish Research Council, 2012-13, and DCAL MAGUS, 2014-15), and have written on historic and contemporary religious radicalism for Books & Culture, The American Interest, The Irish Times, and the Foreign Policy Research Institute.
