Research Interests

John Lenihan is a cultural historian who includes religious thought in his teaching of modern U. S. cultural-intellectual history and has taught a special-topics course on film and Christianity.  His research addresses cinematic representations of religion in the ancient world in Hollywood epics that were particularly fashionable and politically nuanced in the 1950s.
