Nomi Schneck is a graduate student studying medieval art under the supervision of Charles Barber and Beatrice Kitzinger. She specializes in shared artistic traditions between Christianity, Judaism, and Islam in medieval illuminated manuscripts. Schneck’s research is supported by the Stanley J. Seeger ‘52 Fellowship in Hellenic Studies.
Before coming to Princeton, Schneck spent two summers conducting research at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts. Her work focused on combining manuscript study with a diversity of objects to uncover societal and individual customs and beliefs. She also contributed to preparations for the upcoming exhibition, Agents of Faith: Votive Giving Across Cultures, opening at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery. Schneck comes to Princeton with an extensive background in teaching middle school and high school literature and humanities courses. She holds an M.A. in Jewish art and visual culture (Jewish Theological Seminary) and an M.A. in Bible (Yeshiva University).
