Gonzalo is a native of Puerto Rico. His academic interests are the critical study of the New Testament (the Gospels and the Book of Revelation), Early Christianity, Non-canonical literature, and the Greek language. His research engages the intersection of postcolonial and decolonial theories, New Testament narratives, la puertorriqueñidad, and the myriad of hermeneutical implications. The goal is to provoke new conversations toward an awareness of the socio-political situations in a territory marginalized by more than five centuries of foreign domination.
