  • Prof. Dr. Friedrich Vollhardt

    Friedrich Vollhardt, Professor of Modern German Literature Studies at the LMU specializing in Literature of the Early Modern Period, will conduct research on the development of tolerance discourse in the 16th and 17th centuries.

This is intended to provide a contribution to the archeology of the European tolerance idea in an area which has seen little research to date. more
