Research and teaching at the chair of Prof. Dr Lukas Bormann are involved in national and international research networks and focused on the relationship of the New Testament writings to ancient social, political and religious history. Another focus of Prof. Bormann's research is on the history of New Testament research in the context of the Protestant mental history of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
