Research areas

The research concentration "Medieval Theology" within the Department for Historical Theology studies theological texts and ideas from late antiquity to the threshold of modernity. It sponsors individual projects by providing a supportive academical environment, in which scholars benefit from substantial intra- and interdisciplinary expertise as well as from library and other research resources. As a joint effort of the members, it contributes to a new awareness for the richness and fertility of premodern theological thought and practice. The research concentration "Medieval Theology" distinguishes the Faculty of Theology at the University of Vienna within the German speaking academic world and beyond.
