Welcome to New Testament Studies

Department of New Testament Studies

The Department of New Testament Studies welcomes you and invites you to discover our offerings in teaching and research.

In addition to dealing with the New Testament and emerging Christianity, its history and literature (1st / 2nd century CE), the professors offer additional emphasis in Ancient Judaism (Hermut Löhr) and in Greco-Roman Antiquity (Günter Röhser, Jan Rüggemeier).

Social Media

Follow the New Testament on Facebook and Instagram (German-language).


The project ECCLESIAE (Early Christian Centers: Local Expressions, Social Identity, Actor Engagement) pursues answers to questions like "What made the early Christian movement attractive to a range of different persons from (almost) all social strata?" and "How was it embedded in the cultural, religious, and social life of the metropolises of the Roman Empire?"
