Classics and Religious Studies, formerly two distinct units, merged in 1996 to form this now single department. Its 17 full-time professors specialize in a wide range of fields that occasionally interlock, though for most day-to-day purposes the two sectors operate independently. The most important area of convergence lies probably in the field of Late Antiquity, that is, the transition from the Greco-Roman period to the early Middle Ages, where the spread of Christianity played an important part.
