Ptarmigan Foundation Series on Early Christianity and the Ancient World

The Ptarmigan fund was established in 2014 to support academic programming dedicated to the study of religion during the period of Late Antiquity. That same year inaugurated the Ptarmigan Lecture Series to bring together scholars from within religious studies, as well as from related fields such as classics, philosophy, history, and art history, to share perspectives on religion, philosophy and culture during this formative period. Starting in 2019, there began a substantial expansion of supported activities that now include multi-day master classes, symposia, as well as language and manuscript workshops.
