The most discussed star

22 October 2014

For centuries, experts have been discussing the Star of Bethlehem, of biblical renown. New calculations using modern computer programs have led to a new theory on the star's authenticity. As a result, a two-day conference has been organized at the University of Groningen on 23 and 24 October, which will be attended by international experts from countries including the US and the UK.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
