Perception of Other Religions
Start date: Apr 1, 2009,
End date: Mar 31, 2012
"The aim of the research project is to provide an extensive analysis of the perception of other religions and their members by Christian authors of the Early and High Middle Ages from the fifth to the twelfth centuries. For the first time ever, the medieval perception of heathens, Jews, Muslims, heretics and Orthodox Christians, as they are seen by Occidental Catholics, is explored in a comparative and comprehensive manner. The project, therefore, will provide an invaluable contribution to religious thinking, the understanding of religion, the concept of ""the other"" and the (religious) concept of self."
