Our keynote speakers are Hagith Sivan (Department of History, University of
Kansas), Petri Luomanen (Biblical Studies, University of Helsinki), Lucy Grig
(School of History, Classics and Archaeology, University of Edinburgh) and Antti
Lampinen (Classics, University of Turku). Conflict will be approached from a
wide perspective, including different types and levels of conflict and attempts
at solving them. Points of view vary from political and military to cultural and
religious conflicts between and within traditions. Please refer to the programme
