Organizer: Institute for European History in Mainz (Germany)

Time and place: 7 June 2011, Mainz, Alte Universitätstrasse 19, 55116 Mainz, Conference hall

The conference is dedicated to Matthias Flacius Illyricus (Matija Vlačić Ilirik, 1520-1575) from Albona (Labin in today’s Croatia). Scholars from Austria, the United States of America and Germany will present their latest research findings and new sources for discussion. The contributions will highlight Flacius’ involvement in the fields of theology, church politics, philology, historiography, biblical hermeneutics and exegesis, at the same time taking into account the European networks he had built, together with the far-reaching influence of his teachings in the early Confessional Era.
