Focus Group Inclusion and Demarcation



Having assessed the term "heresy", the discussion at the Focus Group shall now shift to the topic of "superstition". The ideas and terms are linked together, as the texts of R. Gordon and J. Rüpke (see below) may show. As well, the two positions are the basis of discussion at this meeting. (Few) Case Studies regarding "superstition" shall follow during summer term 2012. Yet, papers are welcome as soon as the 19th. Anyone interested in presenting something please refer to Christian Frevel. In the end, we hope to limit the period of time in history when "heresy" and "superstition" finally became the opposite of "religion" - or, alternatively, to proof that this has never been the case.
