Looking at the Bible from different angles in this way offers new perspectives on this ancient book. This programme, offered by the Faculty of Humanities (the largest in the Netherlands), gives students the opportunity to explore the Bible and its history in the stimulating environment of the Art, Religion and Culture department which is located in the heart of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is a city with a rich cultural heritage, the significance of the Bible and its long history are evident everywhere. Museums such as the Biblical Museum, the Jewish-historical museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Rembrandt Museum all pay witness to its history and influence, as do the rich collections at the University Library and the Rosenthaliana.
