RESILIENCE Webinar »Early Modern Studies as a Key to Understanding the Religious Situation in Europe«
Webinar with Herman J. Selderhuis, dean of the Theological University of Apeldoorn. You can now register for the TUA webinar. The period 1450-1650 demonstrates intellectual, cultural, political and societal changes that mainly resulted from religious changes and that have become decisive for Europe’s situation today. The split in the Christian church – initiated by Martin Luther – into a catholic and a protestant camp caused a southern Europe mainly characterized by Catholicism and a northern Europe largely dominated by Protestantism. The fact that in the Early Modern period Catholic and Protestant rulers joined forces against the spread of the Ottoman Empire, is one of the causes of a more multireligious situation in south-eastern Europe. These facts underline the need for interdisciplinary research on the Early Modern era. The webinar will inform on the state of research, on lacunae and desiderata and aims and providing insight into how RESILIENCE can contribute to this research. At the same time the webinar aims at collecting feedback from users: what are their needs in this respect? The webinar will be of interest for a wide audience, including academics, scholars, junior and senior researchers, PhD and Master’s students…) interested in the study and research of religion. REGISTRATION Registration is as follows: you send an email to registration@tua.nl. You will then receive a Zoom link in a timely manner that will allow you to participate in the webinar. The IEG is involved as a partner in the project RESILIENCE (REligious Studies Infrastructure: tooLs, Expert, conNections and CEnters in Europe) financed by the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation »Horizon 2020«. The projects aims to establish an interdisciplinary research infrastructure that provides decentralised access to digitised sources, research results, expertise and tools for religious studies.
