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.

Sangalli Institute

The Sangalli Institute for the religious history and cultures is a secular and non-religious institution, addressed to the knowledge and the study of the history and the religious cultures, without distinction between any religious denomination.

It has been created thanks to the generosity of the Sangalli family from Rogno (Bergamo, Italy). The dedication is intended to honour the memory of its members, who, still alive, could express their generosity with relevant donations with charity purposes.

The Sangalli Institute was born in April 2014. Among its goals, there is the purpose to favour and promote, in Italy and abroad, the socio-religious studies both in a long-period historical perspective, in a multi and inter-disciplinary view; and in a larger cultural dimension, open to the comparison and the inter-religious dialogue.

The results of its studies will be disseminated by any possible means of communication, like seminars, congresses, conferences, lessons, publications and internet, in order to particularly support the activity of young scholars.
