Kedves Kollégák,

kétnapos konferenciára invitálunk minden érdeklődőt:

“Ratio Civilis”
The Transformation of Urban Political Cultures in the Age of the Reformation

A konferencia témafelvetése:

"As recent scholarship tends to stress, the early modern period was not one of decline in the history of European cities. While scholars traditionally used to claim that European cities were over the peak of their development by the end of the 16th, or at the latest by the middle of the 17th century, modern historiography tends to emphasize the opposite: many cities were quite successful in preserving their political breathing space even after the treaty of Westphalia.
>Taking into consideration that early modernity gave birth both to the modern territorial state and the newly established Reformed centres and networks of ecclesiastical power, one wonders what kind of political cultures urban elites helped to foster in this context?"
