SoRS - CAMNES School of Religious Studies
Director: Nicola Laneri
The School of Religious Studies (SoRS) at the Center for Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies (CAMNES) is a research and higher education institute dedicated to the investigation of religion in ancient and modern communities, with a particular interest in the Mediterranean region.
The School’s primary objective is to create a bridge between religious beliefs and the practices associated with them. The research approach is to undertake a detailed study of the role played by material culture in connecting with the divine by the members of the involved communities.
