Religious Identity in the Roman Near East

Rubina Raja has recently begun a research project here in Aarhus on “Religious identity, ritual practice and sacred architecture in the late Hellenistic and Roman Near East, 100 BC – AD 400: Sanctuaries between culture, religion and society”, generously funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The project has recently launched its website. Future events include an international workshop on “Religious Identities in the Hellenistic and Roman Near East: Local, Regional, Imperial?” (Aarhus, 18-21 September 2008) and a series of guest lectures. It’s an interesting project investigating the intersections between archaeology and religious studies.
