Profs. Drs. Carol and Eric M. Meyers on Teaching and Research Visit in Leiden

Prof. dr. Carol Meyers, Mary Grace Wilson Professor at Duke University (em. 2015), Durham NC, and her husband prof.dr. Eric M. Meyers, Bernice and Morton Lerner Professor at Duke University (em. 2015), Durham NC have shaped the study of Israelite and Jewish history and material culture in ancient Palestine and the entire Greco-Roman world through lifelong teaching, archaeological fieldwork (especially in the Galilee), innumerable publications and dedicated training of future generations of archaeologists, historians and scholars in Biblical and Judaic studies.

Carol Meyers' research on women in ancient Israel and the Near East, as well as Eric Meyers' studies on Galilean synagogues have broken new ground in research and are now widely regarded as classics in their respective fields.

It is a particular honour to welcome Carol and Eric Meyers in Leiden between April 13 and 30, even more so as they will be giving lectures and a workshop during their stay.

Carol and Eric Meyers' visit is sponsored by the Leiden University Faculty of Humanities (LUCAS, LUIH) via the chair for the History and Culture of Ancient Judaism and Ancient Christianity (Prof. Dr. J├╝rgen K. Zangenberg).
