Van Gelderen on Toleration in the Dutch Republic (Exeter, 16 December)

Tuesday, December 16th, 2-4pm Amory 219

Professor Martin van Gelderen (EUI) – Rembrandt, Grotius and Judaism: Toleration in the Dutch Republic

Martin van Gelderen is Professor of History and Civilization and Director of the Boccaccio Intellectual History Programme at the European University Institute in Florence, where he is also Dean of Studies. His work focuses mainly on the intellectual and cultural history of early-modern Europe, with particular reference to the republican tradition, theories of natural rights and conceptualisations of freedom and toleration. Among his many publications are The Political Thought of the Dutch Revolt and (with Quentin Skinner), Republicanism: a shared European Heritage. His lecture ‘Rembrandt, Grotius and Judaism: Toleration in the Dutch Republic’ will explore early-modern Dutch attitudes to – and imaginings of – Jewish communities and what they mean for understanding the concept of toleration in that, and the broader European, context.
