From http://www.richardcarrier.info/jesus.html :

Jesus Studies

Dr. Carrier has written Not the Impossible Faith on the social and intellectual context of the rise and early development of Christianity, and contributed important chapters to The Empty Tomb, The Christian Delusion, and Sources of the Jesus Tradition, on whether there is enough historical evidence to conclude that Jesus actually rose from the dead, and how Bayes' Theorem should be adapted to the methodology of Jesus studies. Below are links to Dr. Carrier's other work on the historical origins of Christianity.

With a Ph.D. in ancient history from Columbia University, Dr. Carrier specializes in the intellectual history of Greece and Rome, particularly the history of science (http://www.richardcarrier.info/ancientscience.html) and the origins of Christianity. This page is dedicated to the latter, cataloguing his most important work online, more of which is listed at the Secular Web (http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/richard_carrier/index.html). He also discusses this subject on his blog (http://richardcarrier.blogspot.com/) (see entries indexed under Jesus (http://richardcarrier.blogspot.com/search/label/Jesus) and resurrection (http://richardcarrier.blogspot.com/search/label/resurrection)).
