The first phase of the project runs from 2019 until 2022 and focuses on the hermeneutics of resilience narratives, the creation of an interdisciplinary definition of resilience, and the development of more precise diagnostic tools.

Conference on Religious and Philosophical Conversion

The Conference on Religious and Philosophical Conversion in the Ancient Mediterranean Traditions took place at the University of Bonn on 25.-27.09.2018. Many renowned speakers from all over the world (Argentina, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, USA) and excellent junior researchers gave lectures. New insights into the conversion experience, its religious and psychological connotations, and sociological conditions with particular focus on Judaism, early Christianity, and Hellenistic philosophical schools of antiquity were gained.
