About

What cultural and societal processes shaped Jewish, Christian, and Islamic religions? Discover the varied religious roots of modern society, studying the testimonies these traditions left behind. We offer a Jewish, Christian and Islamic Origins degree at the University of Groningen.

Overview

The Department of Jewish, Christian and Islamic Origins is a major European centre for the study of the origins and cultural contexts of the three religious traditions. Based at the non-confessional Faculty of Religion, Culture and Society of the University of Groningen, the department is unique in its combined focus on the multi- and interdisciplinary analysis of the texts and artifacts of these traditions. 

Features

  • Traditional disciplines such as history, archaeology, philology, literary analysis and interpretation, codicology, palaeography, and epigraphy are combined with cutting-edge developments in fields such as artificial intelligence and forensics with a view to cracking the mysteries of the ancient religions of the Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds.

Programme Structure

Research

  • Besides the study of the foundational texts of the Jewish and Christian Bibles, and the Quran, the department puts a strong focus on the alternative traditions not included in the official Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scriptures, but recorded in the famous Dead-Sea scrolls, Jewish and Christian apocrypha, the Nag Hammadi collection, pre- and early Islamic inscriptions and Quranic manuscripts.
