The Faces of the other

Otherness in the Greco-Roman World 2006-2010

The Faces of the Other. Religious Rivalry and Ethnic Encounters in the Later Roman World, published by Brepols in the series Cursor Mundi (no. 10).

The research project The Faces of the other – Otherness in the Greco-Roman world focused on the perception of the otherness – other peoples or religions – in Greco-Roman antiquity. The research of attitudes and conceptions of the ancient Greeks and Romans aims to deepen the historical understanding of the depictions of otherness in modern Western culture. The project Faces traced the roots of the argumentation about religious or ethnic otherness within European civilization and, thus, it will take part in the on-going discussion on the conflict and dialogue between cultures as well as on tolerance and intolerance.
