He serves as co-chairman of the Septuagint Studies section at the Evangelical Theological Society and Member at Large on the Executive Committee of the International Organization for Septuagint and Cognate Studies. His research interests include canon formation, Old Testament textual criticism, Origen’s Hexapla and the philological project of the Caesarean Library, and the biblical languages.
Dr. Meade has published articles on Origen’s Hexapla, Septuagint, and Old Testament Textual Criticism. He co-authored The Biblical Canon Lists from Early Christianity: Texts and Analysis (OUP 2018) and his A Critical Edition of the Hexaplaric Fragments of Job 22–42 (Peeters forthcoming) will appear soon. He is a member of ETS, SBL, and IOSCS.
