The Religious Studies program from University of Erfurt combines methodological tools from History, Religious Studies and Cultural Studies to analyze the role of religion in Europe's complex and pluralistic societies, as well as their global entanglements from a postcolonial perspective. It is possible to focus on General Religious Studies, Jewish Studies, Islamic Studies and the Cultural History of Orthodox Christianity. Each major is represented by a professor and a team of young researchers.
