Blog on Religion & Urbanity from Antiquity to the Present

22 July, 2019

The blog ”Religion and Urbanity: Reciprocal Formations” considers the mutual influence of urbanity and religion from antiquity to the present. It focuses on specific case studies, like Mediterranean cities of the ancient world, early modern political and religious centres or modern Indian towns, but it also introduces more wide-ranging, theoretical investigations. Additionally, the blog is used to announce major events and publications related to this field of research.

The blog is connected to the DFG-funded Humanities Centre for Advanced Studies “Religion and Urbanity: Reciprocal Formations” (FOR 2779), based at the Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies of the University of Erfurt, Germany.
