Anthony Ossa-Richardson is a lecturer in early modern English literature at the University of Southampton. He has written two monographs: The Devil’s Tabernacle (2013), about the reception of the ancient Greek oracles in early modern historical, scholarly and theological thought; and A History of Ambiguity (2019), an account of the way readers and theorists in a variety of fields posited, denied, conceptualised and argued over the presence of multiple meanings in texts between antiquity and the twentieth century. He is currently editing a piece for the forthcoming OUP edition of the works of Sir Thomas Browne, as well as the translation of Bernard de Fontenelle’s Histoire des oracles commonly ascribed to Aphra Behn.
