In 2018 it celebrates its 50th anniversary. One of the events is a two-day international conference, entitled “Down Town / Down Soul: Early Modern Mysticism and the Political”, organized by the Insitute, in collaboration with the Oblate School for Theology San Antonio, Texas, US.

The theme of the conference is twofold:

The impact of early modern mysticism on the formation of the modern subject: In what sense can the “science of the subject”, present in early modern ‘spiritualité’ authors, be read as ‘deconstructing’ the upcoming modern subject?
The relation of early modern mysticism to the politics of its time; and, more specifically, the influence of the early modern mystical subject on the emerging political subject, and vice versa.



The conference will take place at Faculty Club Huize Heyendael Radboud University
