Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


C-SAC was established in 2010 with the aim of gathering research activities in the broad field of Christianity in its Antique context. It is the result of a long process which began back in 1999 with the establishment of the research seminar Antiquity and Christianity

About 10 researchers from the Department of Theology participate in C-SAC activities along with MA-students from Theology and the Nordic Master Programme Religious Roots of Europe. The centre hosts visiting researchers who are here for shorter or longer periods. C-SAC aims to provide a creative, productive and international scholarly milieu that contribute to international research and to education of young scholars in its field.

Interdisciplinarity is a hallmark of C-SAC. Scholars from all theological disciplines contribute to the activities of the centre and so does scholars with a background in the disciplines of Classical Philology, History and Religious Studies.


C-SAC hosts collective as well as individual research projects.
