Please note: The Priority Programme "Integration and Disintegration of Civilizations in the European Middle Ages" (SPP 1173) has been funded by the "Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft" (DFG) from 2005 to 2011. This website informs you about the research activities and publications of the "SPP" within this period.
In July 2005, the "Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft" (DFG) established a medievalist Priority
Programme called "Integration and Disintegration of Civilizations in
the European Middle Ages" (SPP 1173). The programme will be financed
for a period of six years and comprehends 24 research projects in 14
different disciplines (Archaeology, Art History, Byzantine Studies,
Eastern European History, German Literature and Language, History of
Architecture, Islamic and Jewish Studies, Medieval History, Philosophy,
Theology, and Turkish Studies). The research projects are located at 14
different German universities but are closely linked by workshops,
conferences and summer schools. The Priority Programme is coordinated
by Professor Michael Borgolte (Humboldt University of Berlin) and
Professor Bernd Schneidmüller (University of Heidelberg).
