“Gateway to Heaven? The Jerusalem Code in Scandinavia, ca 1000-1948” International conference, 4—6 December, 2018
Organizers: MF Centre for the Advanced Study of Religion, Oslo in cooperation with The Study of Religion, Department of Culture Studies and Oriental Languages, University of Oslo
Throughout the entirety of Christian history, the idea of Jerusalem, earthly and celestial, has been formative to the Christian Church and to European culture. Conceptions of the Holy City, the Promised Land and the Chosen People may be conceived of as a storyworld that shaped the Christian west. Is this storyworld still a living reality, is it forgotten, or is it reconfigured?
