Call for Papers: The Responsible Society in Early Modern Christianity. Voices & Fruits
The conference "The Responsible Society in Early Modern Christianity. Voices & Fruits" will be held in Rome from 26 to 28 January 2022. The organizers, the DHI Rome, the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome, and REFORC, welcome paper proposals on related topics before October 1, 2021.
Social responsibility as the moral obligation individuals or organizations have towards the wellbeing of society, is a key topic in 21st century public debate. The conference centers on the question how this topic was dealt with in Early Modern Christianity (ca.1400 – ca.1700) as a period that brought about fundamental and long-lasting changes and brought forth inspiring individuals with innovative ideas. The conference seeks to shed historic light on the relevant issue of social responsibility in the expectation that academic research comes up with inspirational results.
