This course will explore the ancient messianic idea, its spatial expansion, and its ideational development up to

the present. The topic will be approached from a wide variety of disciplines (Political Science, History,

Philosophy, Anthropology), sharing a common focus on the messiah as a central and enduring symbol of

Jewish and Christian societies and their interconnected eschatological expectations.

The main aim and objective of this course is to provide a solid knowledge of the role of messianism in

shaping Jewish and Christian traditions in order to

- relate this knowledge to phenomena in modern society and thought,

- create the ability to evaluate the ongoing relevance of the messianic traditions in modern thought

and politics, and

- identify the religious dimensions in seemingly secular ideologies and movements.

This summer school is divided into two one-week sections. The first week covers the ancient oriental origins

of the messianic idea and its articulation in Judaism and Christianity up to the Late Middle Ages. The second

week focuses on the messianic symbolisms in modern Christians and Jewish societies but also in the political

visions of liberalism and socialism, in Romantic literature, as well as in idealist and existential philosophy.

Applications are invited from junior faculty and advanced graduate students.

Central European University's summer school (CEU SUN), established in 1996, is a program in English for graduate

students, junior or post-doctoral researchers, teachers and professionals. It offers high-level, research-oriented, interdisciplinary

academic courses as well as workshops on policy issues for professional development, taught by internationally renowned scholars

and policy experts (including CEU faculty). Application from all over the world is encouraged. Financial aid is available.

Application deadline: February 15, 2010
