Aryeh Amihay teaches Judaism and philosophy of law. His research focuses on ancient Judaism, including the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, and rabbinic literature. His most recent book analyzes the sectarian laws found in the Judean Desert Scrolls through contemporary legal theory. He has a BA in biblical studies from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and a PhD in Religion from Princeton University. He is currently working on two projects: an examination of silence and censored speech from the Hebrew Bible to the rabbinic period, and a comprehensive reassessment of a pseudepigraphic work named The Lives of the Prophets.
