    Giuseppe Prigiotti is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Romance Studies. He received an M.A. in Italian with a graduate certificate in Jewish Culture and Society at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an M.A. in Religious Pedagogy at Università Pontificia Salesiana, Rome. He earned a Laurea in Philosophy (Philosophy and History) at Università degli Studi di Catania, Italy. His research interests include Jewish-Christian relations and religion in Italian culture. Starting from the critical reading of Jewish and Christian Italian journals from the Risorgimento, his dissertation will explore, in a dialogic perspective, cultural and religious interconnections between Jewish and Christian communities in Italy. He has published in the Waldensian Bulletin a reduction of his archival reconstruction of the first evangelical community in Catania during the Risorgimento.
