Abstract

In a series of sessions on medieval and early modern dynasticism organised by the ERC project ‘The Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe’ (University of Oxford), we aim to ask afresh what ‘dynasty’ meant at the time. Our sessions seek to interrogate ‘dynasty’ as a category of analysis in its own right, and as a major organising political principle in the pre-modern world.
This panel focuses on Jagiellonian rule in Hungary and Bohemia and includes papers that explore its international and internal political and ideological dynamics, focusing especially on the interaction between the dynasty and local political and intellectual elites.
