Greece 2017


Come explore the history, politics, and social life of the Greco-Roman world in which Christianity emerged in Greece! Led by four scholars of early Christianity and the ancient Mediterranean, as well as a Greek guide, this exciting travel experience will paint vivid pictures of everyday life in ancient Greece, including early Christian social practices. It will paint a three-dimensional picture of religion and politics of the Greco-Roman world, as we see the many ways ancient people engaged divine figures and navigated the social pains and possibilities of the Roman Empire. Most importantly, we will actively integrate early Christian literature, especially the letters and later traditions of Paul, in the colorful, surprising, and haunted world in which they emerged.  Stay tuned for updates, photos, and more from the trip!


Alive in Troubled Times:  Meditations 


From the Tanho Center--a ten-week meditation series to begin and end your week:

Alive in Troubled Times


Join us in taking a few minutes a day to acknowledge these troubled times and claim a sense of being alive. We find ourselves enlivened by newly discovered ancient texts from the earliest Jesus movements. A new reflection arrives on our website, here, and our Facebook page Monday and Friday for the next nine weeks. Simply like our Facebook page to ensure you don't miss a reflection.

Who We Are

Alive! The Tanho Center is dedicated to the exploration of the many discoveries of texts from the earliest Christ movements. By incorporating recently discovered texts into contemporary practices, we hope to signify exactly what tanho means in Coptic: “to make or be alive.”
