Rodrigo loves teaching topics related to the Bible and the history of religion. He is interested in the relationship between Judaism and Christianity, and how they developed their religious ideas. Rodrigo has taught Bible informally in a church setting since 1995, and has been involved in theological education in Brazil, Cuba, Israel, and the United States. His research focuses on how religious groups used the language of contamination in sacred space to exclude people from their communities. He is currently working on Latin Christianity and ancient Judaism, and he wants to expand this further to include the discourse of other religious groups.
