Annette Huizenga teaches a variety of New Testament courses at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary. Her research and writing focus on the social contexts of early Christian literature, with a particular interest in the intersections of ancient educational practices, gender ideologies, and philosophical virtue-training. These topics are addressed in her first book, Moral Education for Women in the Pastoral and Pythagorean Letters: Philosophers of the Household (Brill, 2013), in the Novum Testamentum Supplements series. Recent articles include: “Sōphrosynē for Women in the Pythagorean Texts” (2010), “Epitomizing Virtue: Clothing the Christian Woman’s Body” (2011), and “Paul as Pastor in the Pastoral Letters” (2013). At present, she serves as the lead author for the Pastoral Letters volume of the Wisdom Commentary series (Liturgical Press), which brings feminist and multicultural lenses to each of the biblical texts.
