Claire Clivaz (born 21 March 1971) is an assistant professor in theology at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland). She belongs to the leading committee of the Laboratory of Digital Cultures and Humanities of the University (LADHUL). She is a textual critic and was a pastor in Lutry until 2006. She has three children.
Between 1995 and 1998, she was research assistant of Professor Pierre Gisel, and between 2005 and 2008, research assistant of Professor Daniel Marguerat. In 2007, she received a PhD in theology from the University of Lausanne on the topic "L'ange et la sueur de sang (Lc 22,43-44) ou comment on pourrait bien encore écrire l'histoire" at the University of Lausanne. Since 2008, she is assistant professor of New Testament and Early Christian literature at the Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies of the University of Lausanne.
In 2005, Clivaz has suggested that Papyrus Oxyrhynchus 2383 (Papyrus 69 Gregory-Aland) is coherent with what we know about the Marcionite edition of Luke's Gospel. In 2009, she signaled to the Institute for New Testament Textual Research (INTF) the publication of Papyrus 126.
On October 22–24, 2009 Clivaz organized the conference «Egyptian New Testament Papyri among Others» that took place at the University of Lausanne.
