Michael T. Miller

Michael T Miller works in Jewish Studies, specialising in Jewish mysticism and philosophy, and more recently, Black Judaism. He has published widely in these fields, including in the Journal for the Study of Judaism, and Black Theology. His monograph on the thought and theology of Ben Ammi, leader of the African Hebrew Israelites, will be published by Bloomsbury in 2023. His first monograph, The Name of God in Jewish Thought (Routledge 2016) offered a philosophical/theological examination of Jewish mystical traditions regarding the relationship of naming to identity, incorporating apocalyptic, rabbinic, and kabbalistic texts analysed through the lens of thinkers such as Rosenzweig, Benjamin, and Levinas. He taught in Jewish Studies and Philosophy at Liverpool Hope University from 2016-2019, and has been a Research Fellow at FAU Erlangen-Nurnberg, and at the Polish Institute of Advanced Studies.
