We learned of a conference on early modern natural law in Eastern Europe at the Universität Erfurt.

“Early-Modern Natural Law in Eastern Europe”
Conference of the Network on Natural Law 1625-1850
Research Centre for Early-Modern Natural Law
Max Weber Centre, Erfurt
21-23 November 2019

In 2019, the Network’s conference is being organised by Gábor Gángó and Knud Haakonssen. The theme is the reception of natural law during the early-modern period in the political cultures to the east of the German Empire. In keeping with the programme of the Network, the conference is inter-disciplinary in its approach and is mainly, but not exclusively, focussed on academic natural law. Natural law in Eastern Europe has only be explored to a limited degree, and the conference will open up for new research by  papers devoted to natural law teaching in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vilnius, Elbląg, Toruń, Prague, Vienna, Tyrnau (Trnava), Sárospatak and Klausenburg (Cluj-Napoca). The particular character of natural law discussions in the different religious and political contexts of Eastern Europe will be highlighted, as indicated by the titles in the programme.

Venue: Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies, Steinplatz 2, Erfurt.

Registration: The meeting is free and open for all interested, but we ask you to register by e-mail to Dr. Mikkel Munthe Jensen:
