XVII Congresso Internazionale di Archeologia Cristiana

FRONTIERS. THE TRANSFORMATION AND CHRISTIANIZATION OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE BETWEEN CENTRE AND PERIPHERY

 

The 17th International Congress of Christian Archaeology will take place in the Netherlands, from July 2 – 6, 2018,  and will be hosted jointly by Utrecht University and the Radboud University Nijmegen.

In keeping with the conference´s venue, namely at the very limes of the Roman Empire, its thematic focus will revolve around the question of boundaries, borders, borderlands, and transitional zones of the Later Roman World. The conference seeks to break new ground in this crucial area, in terms of content as well as methodology. In terms of geography and chronology, the emphasis is on the art, archaeology, and epigraphy of any border area of the later Roman world, including its European, North African, and Near Eastern provinces, up until the seventh century C.E. Further information on the actual program can be found here.

In addition, a special public session will be focus on the on-going destruction of Christianity's cultural heritage in the Near East.

The conference will take place in two main venues, namely in Utrecht (Monday July 2, 2018 through Wednesday July 4, 2018) and in Nijmegen (Wednesday July 4, 2018 through Friday July 6, 2018).

Prior to the conference and in the weekend directly following it, several excursions will be organised to pertinent archaeological sites and museums.

The International Congress of Christian Archaeology takes place once every five years. From its inception, in 1894, the congress’ primary aim has been to provide archaeologists working on early Christianity and Late Antiquity with a forum to share their latest discoveries and insights and ponder the many challenges and opportunities that beset this particular area of scholarly endeavour and expertise.
