Religious authorities and churches are often involved in the sacralization of historical politics. Populist parties and regimes also make use of history in this manner.
The conference will explore the sacralization of history with a focus on Eastern Europe. Here, the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the erasure of Soviet traditions and interpretations of history have enabled or made politicians and societies to search or rediscover a connection to their “own usable past.” In addition to the Russian Federation and Ukraine, there is currently an intensive public engagement, for example, with history in the Baltic states, Poland and Hungary, and in the Balkans.
International and interdisciplinary conference organized by the Cluster of Excellence »Religion and Politics«, Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe, and the Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) Mainz in cooperation with and with financial support from the Leibniz-Research Alliance »Historical Authenticity«.
