About

The course is dedicated to the punishment of crucifixion in text, images and archaeological findings from the ancient Mediterranean world. The punishment form has a central role in Christianity. In the ecclesiastical world, scientific and popular publications, in art and movies, there is a detailed description of the Golgotha drama.

There is, however, a tension between the level of information in the ancient sources and the detailed knowledge of our time. This discrepancy is the backdrop for a source critical study of textual and pictorial representations, as well as archaeological findings, in the present course.
