The roman Province Arabia as Religious Landscape in Late Antiquity

The project at hand investigates the history of Christianity within the province Arabia as part of the history of late antique religion. Beginning with the examination of the religious geography we look into continuities, transformations and terminations of religious practice. Further themes are interreligious processes of exchange and communication, the role of Christianity within the cultural system of the province, and the provincial participation in religious structures and standardization in the boundaries of the Roman Empire.
