Undergraduate Learning & Teaching

Late Antiquity is the period roughly between 100 and 700 C.E. when in the regions and cultures around the Mediterranean the modern ‘western’ world emerged.

Religions like Christianity, Judaism, Islam and post-classical (‘Neo’-) Paganism cannot be understood without an in depth understanding of the religious, cultural and political processes at work during that period.

The lists below contain modules that enable students to engage critically with Late Antiquity, focus on one or several religious traditions and thus develop a variety of academic and transferable skills (linguistic, historical, archaeological, sociological and anthropological) to address competently some of the most burning issues in the world today.
