1. STUDENTSHIPS
Attached are the details of an opening for funded doctoral work in Amsterdam in Patristic, Early Christian or Late Antique Studies (it is pretty clear from the details that ‘Patristics’ and ‘Early Christianity’ are the central concerns).

2. CONFERENCES
International Conference on Constantinople and Jerusalem
University of Heidelberg
July 10-12, 2011

The aim of this conference is to explore the links between Constantinople and Jerusalem in the period from the reign of Constantine to the end of Umayyad rule. No other city experienced as great a rise in importance in Late Antiquity, as continuous imperial building activity and ecclesiastical patronage transformed these urban centres into symbols of Empire and Church. Constantinople and Jerusalem were interconnected and interdependent in multiple ways. A wide range of papers on art, ceremony, religion, ideology, imperial rule and Church institutions will explore the literary and material evidence for the twinned histories of these two urban centres.
The programme and further details can be found here.
