Areas of Competence and Research Projects

  • Christianity in the Migration Period
    The Formation of Western Christianity during Late Antiquity and the Early Medieval Period (project, funded by Volkswagenstiftung, 2016–2017)

    The Christian impact on the culture of Western Europe cannot be fully described by traditional categories like “institutions” (papacy, monastery) and “piety” (“Frömmigkeit”). On the contrary, it is also necessary to ask what the underlying content of "western Christianity" really is. Toward that goal, the conference “Formation of European Christianity in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages” focused on the configuration of theological content and the establishment of authorities in order to be able to better describe the theological profile of Western Latin Christianity during the 5th – 7th century.
