Research Topic
The literary contexts of the book of Jonah
Supervised by Dr. William Tooman

Marian is investigating the use of inner-biblical allusions in the book of Jonah. The book weaves together allusions to many other parts of biblical literature in creating its narrative, which shapes the message of the book itself but also forces the reader to reflect on the literature to which it alludes.
