After studying theology in Giessen and Marburg, Germany, Juan Garcés received a doctorate in Biblical Studies from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, in 2003. He has since gained experience in the field of Digital Humanities as analyst, consultant, and adviser for digitally-based research projects, particular in the field of Greek texts.
