Forschungsprojekte

'Klostervogtei und Herrschaft im Heiligen Römischen Reich' (Church Advocacy and Lordship in the Holy Roman Empire).

Verfassungsgeschichte and Landesgeschichte have long recognized the significance of church advocacy. In the Anglophone scholarly community, however, church advocacy remains virtually unknown. The few works that do discuss it, typically in the context of noble lordship, rely on outdated assumptions rather than systematic research. A detailed study of church advocates—one that combines Austrian and German sources and methodologies with current American, British and French theories about medieval lordship more generally—therefore offers the opportunity to drive research on the empire, church and nobility in new directions.
