The topic of this course is the identity formation processes that Judaism, Christianity and Islam went through in relation to one another with the wide spectrum of types of interaction involved, from conflict to coexistence and cooperation. The aim of the course is to enable students to understand the complex processes at play as individuals and groups form their identities through interaction in religious, social, and political spatial settings, taking into account issues such as art, gender, economy, history, and collective memory. Special attention is paid to institutions and spaces where religious identities were shaped, and in addition to written sources, the course focuses in particular on archaeological remains, art, inscriptions, and papyri. These studies will prepare students for active engagement with issues of crucial importance in the contemporary world. The course ends with a three week trip to Israel that includes hands-on experience with archaeological excavations.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
