Welcome

  • Since 1950, more than 1100 academics from more than 50 countries have received support in the decisive phase of their academic development – as doctoral and postdoctoral researchers – in the form of the research scholarships and fellowships of the Leibniz Institute of European History. After rooms of residence were opened in the Institute in 1953, almost all fellows and scholarship holders lived and worked in the Domus Universitatis during their period of funding.

    To the Scholarship and Fellowship Programme

  • As many refugees continue to cross the Mediterranean and are becoming a visible phenomenon of our everyday lives, the margins of Europe are currently moving to the centre of public attention. It is precisely at these margins that the process of negotiating what Europe is occurs. The Leibniz Institute of European History researches such processes of negotiation from the historical perspective and will do so in greater depth with its focus topic for 2016/2017: “Europe from the Margins”.

  • The library offers approximately 87,000 titles on the history of Europe from the mid-fifteenth century. There is an emphasis on general European history and international history, as well as church history and theological history from the period of Humanism and Reformation onward.

      To the Library

  • The IEG researches the historical foundations of Europe in the modern era. Its research projects are developed in an interdisciplinary way by the Department of Western Religious History and the Department of Universal History. They span the historical periods from the beginning of the modern era to contemporary history.
