PhD student invited to ERC conference on “Lived Ancient Religion”

March 20, 2017

We were happy to be informed that one of our PhD students, Nirvana Silnovic, was formally ivited to the international conference “Leaving the (disciplinary) comfort zone – Lived Ancient Religion AD 1 to 800”, to be held at the University of Erfurt, Germany, in early April. The ERC Advanced Grant project on which the conference focuses takes a completely new perspective on the religious history of Mediterranean antiquity, starting from the individual and "lived" religion instead of cities or peoples. "Lived ancient religion" suggests a set of experiences, of practices addressed to, and conceptions of the divine, which are appropriated, expressed, and shared by individuals in diverse social spaces.

Nirvana will give a paper on Acts of Remembering and Objects of Remembrance. Individual Modification and Appropriation of Mithraea.
