Central Europe's Special Role in the History of Europe

Date: 21 October 2015
Dr. Marta Fazekas, PhD, History, Andrassy University in Budapest
 
Abstract
This region has always played a special role in the history of Europe. From the beginning of the first millennium, when the kings of this region decided to follow Christianity, governed by Rom, they marked the later destiny of their land forever. In the turbulent times of the Middle Ages, during the Enlightenment and Romanticism and later on until the end of the First World War, these people tried to find their balance, living on the borderline between East and West. Accordingly, historical facts and myths of the Central European nations will be covered in the lecture to highlight the dissimilarities and parallels in their story.
