The Religions of Late Antiquity Seminar (formerly the Patristics Seminar) meets in even weeks of term.The seminar gathers graduate students, scholars and visiting scholars in the University interested in religions of late antiquity (Christianity, Judaism, cults of the Greco-Roman and near eastern worlds) and their interactions. It shares a common interest with the Cambridge Late Antiquity Network Seminars (CLANS), which engage with the late antique and early medieval periods from a range of disciplines and interdisciplinary perspectives (including Classics, History, Theology and Religious Studies).  In Michaelmas Term 2021 it is chaired by Dr Anna Lefteratou al2083@cam.ac.uk
