Christianity and Judaism in Antiquity

This Master's programme aims at providing insights into the development of Jewish and Christian identity and culture in the various intellectual, social, and material contexts of antiquity, primarily in the period between the conquests of Alexander the Great in the 3rd century BCE and the Arab conquests of the 7th century CE.

The study program is based on courses in history, religious studies and language. This includes courses in:

- one or more ancient languages (Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Coptic, or Syriac)
- the history of Christianity and Judaism in their ancient contexts
- the material culture of Christianity and Judaism in antiquity (art, manuscripts, architecture, archaeology)

The program provides opportunities to specialize according to the students' own interests, both through elective courses and through the writing of a thesis.

The Master's degree qualifies for further studies at the PhD level. The Master's program is a two-year academic course of study.
