Here is the second edition of our workshop for young researchers, who will be gathered from 14th to 16th September 2016 in Florence discussing their subjects together with renowned Italian and foreign scholars. With ‘Writing on Religion in the Modern World (XVIth-XVIIIth centuries)’, scientifically coordinated by Massimo Carlo Giannini and Maurizio Sangalli, our Institute is continuing the concrete support to the formation of the young generations of researchers, coming from Europe and overseas, allowing them to focus on the different ways in which some topics concerning the great monotheistic religions, especially Christianity and Ebraism, were faced during the modern age.
Here is the second edition of the ‘Sangalli Institute Award for the Religious History’, in collaboration with the Department of University and Research of the Municipality of Florence and under the auspices of the same Municipality. Also this year, our award is joining the ‘Premio Ricerca Città di Firenze’ and it is addressed to young Italian and Foreign researchers, offering them the possibility of publishing two books concerning the religious history from Middle Ages to the Contemporary Era, in an inter-disciplinary and inter-religious perspective. The essays will appear in a dedicated book series of the Firenze University Press. Deadline: 1st November 2016.
