Professor Heinz Schilling (Humboldt University, Berlin)
Title: Religion and migration in early modern Europe – the Calvinist and the Sephardic experience
Professor Heinz Schilling can rightly be considered the doyen of Early Modern Historians now living. In 1992 he was appointed as first professor of Early Modern European History in the Institute of Historical Studies (Institut für Geschichtswissenschaften) at Humboldt University, Berlin. Among a very wide array of prestigious ancillary positions, Professor Schilling has served as chair of the Vereins für Reformationsgeschichte, the German branch of the Society for Reformation Research, and is a corresponding member of the British Academy and a member of Academia Europaea. Professor Schilling is the founding father of the theory of religious confessionalization, which has become one of the conceptual building blocks for historians working in the field of Early Modern History.
