Prof Peter Lineham BA, M.A. Hons, DPhil, BD

Professor in History

School of Humanities

Regional Director - Auckland

CoHSS - Deputy PVC's Office

Peter Lineham has for many years written and lectured extensively on the religious history of New Zealand, although his earliest work, still continuing, was on the 18th and 19th century history of British Protestant sects. His recent work has focused on broader trends in contemporary religion although he has not lost his fascination with the nineteenth-century adjustment of religion within New Zealand. His most recent book is "Destiny: the Life and Times of a Self-made Apostle" (Penguin Books, 2013). He is currently engaged in various projects on new religious movements in New Zealand, and on Brethren, Protestant, Evangelical and Anglican history.

Peter Lineham is a respected historian focusing on religion and society in 18th and 19th century England and New Zealand. He has extensively published in the field. He is widely used as a media commentator on these fields and on contemporary religious trends. He lives in Auckland, and is a well known bibliophile!
