Conference: Philanthropy and Foundations in the Eastern Mediterranean: Christian, Jewish and Muslim Perspectives
Leibniz-Institut für Europäische Geschichte (IEG): Alte Universitätsstraße 19, 55116 Mainz

As part of a course taught during the SS2019 on the same subject, a two-day conference will be held at which researchers will present papers on aspects on the interplay between charity and foundations in the Eastern Mediterranean. The presentations will touch upon various aspects of this dynamic at different points in the region’s history, from Late Antiquity until the present day. The papers will be pre-circulated to facilitate discussion, and the proceedings of the conference will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Endowment Studies.
