Governing the World
Papacy and Roman Curia through the centuries
Research Tools for History and History of Law
As in previous years, the Max-Planck-Institut for European Legal History invites doctoral students and young researchers to participate in the Study Sessions, called “Studientage”. The purpose of the workshop is to offer participants the basic tools for beginning research in the archives of the Holy See and of other Roman ecclesiastical institutions as well as to provide elements for a critical interpretation of the sources and their contextualization through the most current literature.
In 2017 the Study Sessions, coordinated by Dr. Benedetta Albani and Prof. Dr. Massimiliano Valente, will concentrate on the Modern Period and will focus on the following subject: “Governing the World: Papacy and Roman Curia throughout the centuries. Research Tools for History and History of Law”. The seminar will take place in Frankfurt am Main from 27th to 29th September 2017.
In addition, round table talks will provide ample room for methodological discussions as well as for the presentation of problems and questions related to the research activity of the participants. The lessons will be delivered in English and Italian; an English summary will be provided at all times.
Applications must be submitted to Benedetta Albani (email@example.com) by 15th June 2017 and include, together with the application form duly completed, a short description of the candidates’ research activity (max. 1000 characters, spaces excluded) and an updated CV (max. 3 pages). The selected candidates will be notified by July 1st 2017. Application material is available at the official website.
The Max-Planck Institute will provide accommodation; however, travel expenses must be covered by the participants. In exceptional cases, it may be possible to obtain financial aid.
