Calendars in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages: Standardization and Fixation
Professor Sacha Stern and five research associates are studying the evolution of calendars in late antique and medieval societies, with a special focus on Roman, Christian, Jewish, and Islamic calendars. The complex evolution of these calendars was closely related to politics, science, and religion, and contributed more widely to the standardization of culture in the ancient and medieval worlds.
This European Research Council funded research project is based in the Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies at University College London.
The ERC Advanced Grant of €2,499,000 is the largest ever achieved in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
