The Emmy Noether research group undertakes the first systematic analysis of the use of protest and violence in conflicts pertaining to religious culture and Church power in late-nineteenth-century and early-twentieth-century Europe.
National motivated Inner-Catholic conflicts and Anticlericalism in the Austro-Hungarian Littoral (Trieste, Istria, Fiume/Rijeka), 1890-1914
The project of Péter Techet analyses the impact that ethno-national conflicts had on the local Catholic church and religious life in Trieste and Fiume/Rijeka. It investigates what role the Slavophil policies of Pope Leo XIII played in this context and how conflicts in the Austrian and Hungarian parts of the coastline unfolded differently.
