TM1 & TM4 Workshop: The Idea of Heresy; 26-29 April 2022; Weimar, Germany
Topic: The Idea of Heresy
Venue: Schloss Ettersburg, Weimar, Germany
Organisers: Shail Mayaram (TM1), Martin Fuchs (TM4) and Rajeev Bhargava (TM4)
The History Module (TM1) along with the Module on Normative Conflicts and Transformation (TM4) of ICAS:MP are organising a Conference on the Idea of Heresy. We seek to examine the idea of heresy at the conceptual level as also the manifestation of the phenomenon in history as it exemplifies the Metamorphoses of the Political in the long twentieth century.
In terms of ideal types we can identify then three forms of orientation to heresy in each of which the following aspects predominate:
- Truth, Revelation and Dogma
- Orthopraxy as distinct from orthodoxy
- Pagan worlds, with neither orthopraxy nor orthodoxy
Renowned scholars from different countries will participate in this conference.
