Arduum res gestas scribere - writing history is incredibly difficult.

Maijastina Kahlos

University researcher, PhD, adjunct professor (docent) in Classics

I am a historian and classicist, and a docent (University of Helsinki, Finland). I am currently working as a Principal researcher at University of Lisbon, Centro de Estudos Clássicos (Centre for Classical Studies). My research interests broadly include late Roman history, particularly the fourth and fifth century C.E., the religions in the Roman Empire, Christianization of the Empire, and Roman everyday life.
