12.9.2017 The kick-off party of the spread of early christianity in cultural evolutionary perspective 

We are happy to announce that our project The Spread of Early Christianity received a four year funding from the Academy of Finland. Since this called for celebration, we had a kick-off party on 12.9.2017 at 4 pm at the Department of Biblical studies (Vuorikatu 3, 4th floor). 

It was an excellent day for the Department of Biblical Studies in Helsinki since we got to celebrate not just one but two new projects funded by the Academy of Finland. Alongside our project, Tuukka Kauhanen received five year funding for the critical edition of the Septuagint of 2 Samuel.

The evening was a succes, lots of exciting conversations.


Not forgetting the mandatory (very long) speech by our dean, Ismo Dunderberg.


And of course our brand new web pages were introduced to our collegues.


Congratulations to Tuukka Kauhanen and Petri Luomanen!
