Jewish, Christian and Islamic Origins

Our research and teaching focuses on the formative stages of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. We study their dynamic interrelationship in the context of ancient Near Eastern, Graeco-Roman and late antique cultures. How did Judaism, Christianity and Islam develop out of the cultural matrices of antiquity, from the beginnings of Judaism until the beginnings of Islam? Our expertise covers a wide range of sources and fields, including the Hebrew Bible and early Judaism; Qumran, the New Testament and early Christianity; Gnosticism and Nag Hammadi; and Qur’an and early Islam.
