The lecture introduces briefly into some pivotal periods and traditions of the multi-entangled history of religions from an Asian centered point of view. In this perspective particularly the dynamics within and the interactions of the religious fields of Mesopotamia, Iran, Central, East, South, and Southeast Asia come into sight, whereas Europe and the Americas appear only at the margin until missionaries, merchants, artists, soldiers, intellectuals, and their rulers from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean with alternative worldviews, new technologies, economic, and military powers change the game of the whole region through their colonial and hegemonic activities. An impact that on the part of Europe already can be observed during Hellenistic times as consequences of Alexander the Great and his conquering expeditions. In this horizon Jews, Christians, Gnostics, and since the second half of the 7th century quite similar Muslim become rather visible as local actors in a specific area of Asia than as representatives of a European or Arabic, respectively a Near Eastern religious tradition.


The lecture starts at the 15. April 2021, and is held weekly during the announced time. The keyword for StudIp you can get via E-Mail from the lecturer in the week after Easter.
