Summary

This workshop examines the recurrence of narratives of secularisation across history, the history of science and literature in a European context. What does the concept of secularisation do for narratives of state formation, the emergence of modern science, the appropriation of church lands, or for the emergence of modernity? Are there other, less linear models of development that can more successfully address humankind’s ever-changing relationship towards the divine?
