About the Research Group

The New Testament is a collection of ancient cultural remains as well as a classic of continuing relevance in western and Christian history. The research group New Testament Studies explores the origins and early texts of Christianity. 

The research group approaches the texts from the following four perspectives:

  • The historical approach - the texts in ancient Jewish and Greco-Roman context
  • The canon-historical approach - early Christian discourse on textual authority
  • The literary approach - the semiotics, rhetoric, and aesthetics of the texts
  • The reception-historical approach - the New Testament as classic in church and culture

New Testament Studies is a research unit under the research program Christianity and Theology in Culture and Society at the School of Culture and Society, Aarhus University.
