Schutzgewähr in Phasen religiöser und politischer Expansion

Die Nachwuchsforschergruppe untersucht Schutzkonzepte und –praktiken in Lateineuropa, dem Mittelmeerraum, dem Nahen Osten, Zentralasien und Afrika mit einem Schwerpunkt auf dem Zeitraum zwischen 500 und 1500. Die Gruppe konzentriert sich insbesondere auf individuelle Fälle von Schutzgewähr für Verfolgte, beispielsweise den Schutz von Sklaven, Frauen, Andersgläubigen, Kriminellen und Rebellen in Phasen politischer und religiöser Expansion, etwa während der Christianisierung Lateineuropas oder der Islamisierung der arabischen Halbinsel, (Nord)afrikas und Zentralasiens. Erforscht wird, wie Konzepte und Praktiken von Schutzgewähr in transkulturellen Gesellschaften koexistierten, konkurrierten, sich veränderten, welche Konflikte zwischen religiösen und politischen Autoritäten um Schutzgewähr entstanden und wie diese gelöst wurden, aber auch, wem unter welchen Bedingungen Schutz gewährt wurde und wie sich die Voraussetzungen für Schutzgewähr veränderten, welche Schutzräume und Orte relevant waren und was sie auszeichnete, wer in Konflikten vermittelte und als Mediator anerkannt oder abgelehnt wurde, schließlich aber auch, wie mit Fällen von Schutzmissbrauch umgegangen wurde. Besonderes Interesse gilt dem Problem interreligiöser Schutzgewähr, etwa der Frage, unter welchen Umständen bzw. in welcher Absicht anders- oder ungläubigen Flüchtlingen Schutz zugesprochen wurde.

Urban Dynamics and Transcultural Communication in Medieval Sicily. International Conference. November 26–27, 2015.

Organisers: Theresa Jäckh (Transcultural Studies) und Mona Kirsch (Cluster of Excellence)

Venue: Hochschule für Jüdische Studien, Landfriedstraße 12, 69117 Heidelberg

 

Recent scholarship on the medieval Mediterranean has underlined the importance of Sicily as a prime example to study processes of transcultural exchange and entanglement. The island in the centre of the Mediterranean basin is considered a paradigmatic case for a medieval transcultural society, which received and absorbed elements of different traditions in terms of language, art, administration and also economy. The dynamics of these processes of interaction lie at the core of the conference “Urban Dynamics and Transcultural Communication in Medieval Sicily”. The contributions will focus on urban centres of Medieval Sicily as hubs in regional, trans-regional, and in wider Mediterranean networks.

The international conference organised by the University Project “Transcultural Studies” and the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context” in cooperation with the Jewish College Heidelberg will bring together renowned scholars from different disciplines such as Islamic Studies, Byzantine Studies, Jewish Studies, Medieval History, and Art History.
