About Dr. Duncan

Dr. Patricia Duncan grew up in rural Missouri and earned a BA in Religious Studies from the University of Missouri. A bit later, she enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago. She enjoyed the program so much, that she went on to earn a Ph.D. there as well. In 2015, Dr. Duncan joined the Department of Religion at TCU, where she teaches classes on early Christianity and ancient Greek. Her first book, a literary study of the only early Christian “novel” to survive from antiquity, came out in 2017. In December of 2018, she was ordained as a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), and attends University Christian Church with her husband and two young daughters.
