Call for Papers. Conference on Stephen Báthory

REFORC, University of Eötvös Loránd (Budapest), Institute of European History (Mainz), Institute of Protestant Theology, Landau Campus, Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities Sibiu, Association of Transylvanian Studies (Sibiu) announce the third conference on Stephen Bathory: Stephen Báthory – Governance between Tendencies of Pluralization and Homogenization. The conference will take place in Sibiu, October 12-14, 2023.​


Stephen Bathory (1533-1586) is known in historiography as Prince of Transylvania, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania. Until recently, his figure and actions were described separately in the Hungarian, Romanian, Polish and Lithuanian contexts, so that the impression could arise that Stephen Báthory, Bátory István and Stefan Batory were three different persons, who each conducted different policies in their domains.​


This third international conference will be devoted especially to his governance in the various political and religious contexts in Transylvania, Hungary and Poland-Lithuania.

The organisers welcome paper proposal until the 10th of April 2023.


Please, visit the REFORC website for more information.

The aim of this conference is to analyze the relation, conflicts and exchanges, between Christian-democracy and the so-called “new social movements” from the 1960s until the early 1990s. It wants to adopt a reciprocal perspective, looking at the ways in which Christian-Democratic parties and related movements reacted in response to the emergence and development of these movements from the 1960s onwards, and, inversely, at the ways in which these “new social movements” were interconnected, in real and imagined terms, to Christian-Democracy. The geographical scope is not limited to Western Europe, but also includes other regions, most notably Latin America.


Interested scholars are invited to send a proposal of max. 500 words (including an abstract and title) before February 15, 2023.
