view profile

Matthias M. Tischler is a historian with interest in comparative transcultural research on religious and historical traditions, and on the plural religious and scholastic cultures and their effects on medieval and modern Europe’s various identities. His recent work deals with the role of Carolingian culture in processes of identity building in the peripheries of post-Carolingian Europe, on the interrelationship between the medieval edition of biblical manuscripts and historical writing in transcultural societies, and on the transfer and transformation of scholasticism in the European centres and peripheries of learning. His research aims at the development of a new master narrative of counteracting collective religious memories in transcultural medieval Europe and beyond, in order to sensitize our present times to Europe‘s social, religious and cultural plurality in a global world order.
