Timothy Beal is the Florence Harkness Professor of Religion and chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Case Western Reserve University. He has published thirteen books, most recently The Book ofRevelation: A Biography (Princeton University Press, forthcoming 2018), for which he won a Public Scholar Award from the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is also the editor-in-chief of The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Bible and the Arts, which was named the Best Print Reference in the Humanities by Library Journal in 2015. He has written essays on religion, media, and culture for The Chronicle of Higher Education, The New York Times, and CNN.com, among others. Over the past few years, he has begun working in the programming language of Python in order to carry out research in natural language processing, machine learning, and neural machine translation as they relate to religious studies and the humanities more broadly.
