MemberMaximilian Nix

Maximilian Nix is a doctoral researcher in the DFG-funded Research Training Group „Religious Knowledge in Pre-Modern Europe“ at the University of Tübingen in Germany. Currently, he is working on a dissertation on the influence of religious knowledge in the process of (de-)legitimization of resistance in the High Middle Ages. Medieval authors were quite free in their usage and interpretation of bible passages and religious authorities to either support or condemn contemporary authorities. This dissertation examines resistance as a multi-layered construction process within a discourse of religious knowledge.
