During the first millennium of the common era the land rabbinic literature refers to as "Land of Israel" (as well as "the Land" and "the West"), was known not only by multiple names, but also reflected upon in different languages, looked at through manifold lenses, and from several geographical and ideological distances. The interdisciplinary conference "Ancient and Early Medieval Homelands" is concerned with the changing conceptualisations and with constants in the expression of the meaningfulness of the Holy Land in literatures of the Roman, Byzantine, and early Muslim periods.

The conference takes place online. We kindly ask you to register in advance using this link. For security reasons, we will send you the access codes shortly before the event.
