Curriculum vitae

Philip Jany studied Medieval History, German Philology, and Ancient History at the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, where he graduated with an MA degree in 2013. From July 2013 to June 2015, he has been working as a research fellow at the IKGF Erlangen. His main interests are the role of eschatological and apocalyptical arguments in the struggle between empire and papacy in the High Middle Ages (which is the topic of his dissertation project) and the founding phase of the Germanic realms on the foundations of the former Roman Empire.
