The Centre for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences "Religion and Urbanity: Reciprocal Formations" at the University of Erfurt organized a lecture series in the winter semester 2020/21 under the title "Religion and Urbanity in Time and Space".

Religion and urbanity are globally widespread and long-established strategies for dealing with and promoting human sociality. In a world where more than half the population lives in cities and religion is far from disappearing or being relegated to the private sphere, how they were historically intertwined is a critical issue that requires further and more detailed study. The lecture series, consisting of 10 lectures by renowned researchers, presents such interconnections through concrete examples of Mediterranean, Northern European, North American, and Asian cities from the emergence of urbanism to the present.

Organizers: Dr. Elisa Iori (elisa.iori@uni-erfurt.de) and Dr. Emiliano Rubens Urciuoli (emiliano.urciuoli@uni-erfurt.de)
