Mark Lilla is professor of humanities at Columbia University. He has held positions at New York University, Oxford University (visitor), and most recently in the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.

His work ranges widely in the history of ideas, though his central concerns have been the relation between religion and politics and the legacy of the modern Western enlightenment. His books include G.B. Vico: The Making of an Anti-Modern (1993), The Reckless Mind: Intellectuals in Politics (2001), and, most recently, The Stillborn God: Religion, Politics, and the Modern West (2007). His current research focuses on the religious concepts of conversion and innocence.
