About the series
Late antiquity, a period roughly between 300 and 800 CE, is one of the most dynamic areas of historical research. A time of adaptation and change, and an epoch full of contradictions, stories of crises and new beginnings, late antiquity holds the key to understanding the first millennium and the present day. The ELLA series of lectures will bring to Erfurt the foremost experts in the field from Germany and abroad to discuss their research and to present new approaches on various aspects of this dynamic and fascinating time. In line with the focus of the "Urbanity and Religion" centre in Erfurt, a keen eye will be kept o the intersection of religion and urbanity.
