Tag der Münsteraner Archäologien

At the Münster Archaeology Day on 4 May, all interested parties are invited to get to know the diversity of archaeological research in Münster. A varied programme awaits you from 10 am to 5 pm in the Fürstenberghaus.
Anyone interested in the latest research findings is sure to find what they are looking for in our extensive lecture programme and poster exhibition. If you are tempted by the treasures of bygone times, you should join one of the guided tours through the Archaeological Museum! Or you can try out modern research methods for yourself at one of the activity stands and find out how archaeological field research works during a demonstration excavation.
If you are considering studying archaeology at the University of Münster, why not take the opportunity to talk to the teaching staff, our students or the student advisory team?

Consolidation of Law. Experiencing Ancient Documents

The workshop aims to examine one way of dealing with legal plurality: law consolidation, that is any attempt to order a multi-normative environment of an ancient polity. Both top-down approaches of the state and bottom-up pursuits of ordinary users of law will be examined on the basis of ancient sources.

Arabic Literature in Dialogue with Nature

Research on “hunting poetry” used to declare the nonexistence of such courtly pleasure during the Mamluk period and research on “nature poetry” mainly focused on flowers, garden and spring up to around 1100.
This conference will explore the topic of hunting and nature more broadly in Arabic literature during Mamluk times in many diverse literary fields, poetry and prose, in order to explore some of those treasures that have been ignored far too long. Next to different kinds of hunting we will observe the Nile flood, a supernova, several earthquakes, a fruit contest, and nature in religious contexts as well as how nature is transformed into abstract concepts.

Monsters and Fantasy worlds in Greece

Monstrous and extraordinary figures appear in Greek visual and textual worlds from antiquity to modern times. They leave a lasting impression, but also arouse amazement and horror. During the seminar, several aspects of the fantastic and monstrous will be discussed from philological, historical, ethnological, art-historical and natural science perspectives.

Body images and body practices in the religions of the world

The conference serves as preparation for the exhibition "Religion and the Body. From Antiquity to Today", which the EXC will be showing at the Archaeological Museum and the Bible Museum of the University of Münster from October 2024 to February 2025.
The keynote speech "God and the body. Some unusual perspectives from the Jewish-Christian tradition" will be given by Prof. Dr CHRISTOPH MARKSCHIES on Monday (13.11.2023, 19:00-20:00, Room JO 1).

Kolloquium zum Nachleben des Origenes XII I 26-27 October 2023

The anti-Origenist writings of Theophilus of Alexandria

Theophilus of Alexandria (385–412) was the driving force behind the condemnation of Origen as a heretic. Initially a follower of Origen, in 399/400 he turned against him and contemporary Origenists. What were the motives for this change of course? What role did the Alexandrian bishop's claims to political power play in this?

Laughter and criticism

Parodies of religious texts and practices have been handed down in Jewish, Islamic and Christian contexts. This interdisciplinary and comparative conference will examine the conditions under which religious parodies are possible, the contexts and times in which they are increasingly written, and how they are received or censored. It will also focus on the functions of these parodies, their potential and their relationship to tradition, and their significance in the history of religion and culture as well as in social and political terms.

Venue: Seminar room JO 101, Johannisstraße 4, Münster

Organisation: PD Dr. Pia Claudia Doering, Prof. Dr. Regina Grundmann, Prof. Dr. Syrinx von Hees

Time: 11 to 13 September 2023
Venue: Johannisstraße 4, JO 101, Münster
Registration is requested.
