Frazer grew up in New Zealand, moving to the UK for his tertiary education at the University of Oxford. In 2022 he graduated with a doctorate in early Christian theology. His thesis focused on the early Christian bishop and martyr Ignatius of Antioch, using the lens of memory to trace trajectories of influence through his life and legacy. This was published by Mohr Siebeck under the title The Memory ofIgnatius of Antioch. Frazer now works on behalf of the New Zealand government to negotiate and provide settlements of redress for the state’s historical injustices against Māori (indigenous population) throughout Aotearoa’s history of colonisation. He continues to write and teach about religion and the humanities.
