Research foci (and basic equipment-based research projects):
Historical development and change in Roman public religion is being analysed by means of systematic studies of each particular cult. The aim is to create a ground for a new comprehensive history of Roman religion.
The history of Roman religion will also play a major part in a new interpretation of the Roman calendar. In contrast to former approaches, this will emphasize genuinely Roman elements in more detail.
Conferences on the Roman calendar at the universities of Eichstätt and Münster.
