The theme of the colloquium is ‘Sacred landscapes – connecting routes’ and focuses on the role of landscape, geography, traffic and paths of connection and communication in interpreting the religious environment. While this colloquium is concerned with these issues in Antiquity, they are in fact universal and reflect on how we look at urban and rural space and the importance of religion for collective identities today.
