"Fate, Freedom and Prognostication" in the Middle Ages (2012)



A Portrait of Prof. Herbers (First Deputy Director IKGF)

At the IKGF, Sinology and Medieval History meet both bringing in the history and tradition of their respective subjects. As different as these sciences are, they are dealing with the topic of the Consortium, “Fate, Freedom and Prognostication”, from their own perspectives. Klaus Herbers, director of the Medieval History Department at the FAU, reviews the academic research of the Consortium to date, also stating the forthcoming aims and anticipated results of the cooperation between Sinology and History.
