WG Communities, Peoples, Mobility  
The projects of this working group focus on medieval "visions of community" and on the political efforts undertaken to realize these ideals. It was, in particular, Christian societal models, ethnic concepts and imperial traditions of legitimation that had a lasting effect on medieval Europe between 400 and 1200. From an examination of the sources it is clear that these identity-constructs, the product of constantly changing processes of communication, by no means constituted the manifestations of stable communities. Instead, they were much strategic ploys in a process of negotiation that sought to establish a consensus concerning the legitimacy of power and the coherence of social integration. The comparative approaches employed in the projects allow their results to be applied beyond the confines of the Latin-speaking Middle Ages and compared with parallel societal models elsewhere.

WG Political Transformation and Plurality  
The projects in this working group approach the formation and transformation processes in Carolingian Francia and its successor-states from different groups of sources. As one of the most successful early medieval examples of community-formation, the Carolingian Empire formed the political, social, religious and cultural order in much of Europe from the eighth well into the tenth century. Its gradual disintegration, which was already underway in the ninth century, has frequently been depicted as a tragedy, both by contemporaries and by modern researchers – supposedly an unexceptional fate in a bleak era between the shaping of Europe by the family of Charlemagne and the dawn of the more nation-state-oriented Middle Ages in the eleventh century. Older historical research saw the post-Carolingian era as a period in which the old imperial centre and political order lost importance, which acted as a catalyst for political fragmentation and the development of the later European nation-states. Modern narratives often interpret this time as a period formed by the disintegration of the political geography, institutions and structures of the ninth century. However, it was precisely this regional diversity and fragility of political structures in the tenth century that made it as much a time of transition as of crisis, and gave it an enormous potential for fundamental and lasting changes in the social and political order of Europe. Authority took on new forms through the growth of the power of influential families and bishops, regional communities emerged as political actors, borders changed constantly and inherited political structures and institutions were adapted. Fragmentation, particulisation and regionalisation can be interpreted not only as symptoms of a time of crisis, but also as part of a search for opportunities to establish new structures in all areas of life – from politics to religion, from law to scholarship. These developments necessitated changes in discourses about political and social order – changes which historians can detect in the sources preserved from this exciting period. The post-imperial loss of unity concerning the location and manner of social and political authority was an essential trait of the tenth and eleventh centuries, and the team of this working group examines this in the many different possibilities for the use of the past.

The Legacy of the Psalms in Byzantine Poetry: Book Epigrams and Metrical Paraphrases  
(FWF project: I 3544-G25, 01.07.2018-31.08.2022) “The Legacy of the Psalms in Byzantine Poetry: Book Epigrams and Metrical Paraphrases” is a joint project of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Ghent University. It is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF, project I 3544) and the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and directed by PD Dr Andreas Rhoby (Vienna) and Professor Dr Kristoffel Demoen (Ghent). It aims to investigate the reception of the Psalms in two specific genres of Byzantine poetry, i.e. in metrical paratexts (book epigrams) and metrical paraphrases. In addition, the project will analyse the impact of the Psalms for Byzantine (religious) poetry as well as the context of poems dealing with the Psalms. More specifically, the aim of the project part carried out at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna, is to provide the first full critical edition of Manuel Philes’ Metaphrasis of the Psalms (of almost 3600 fifteen-syllable verses) (partly ed. by G. Stickler 1992). The project started on July 1st, 2018 and will run until 2022. The most important results will be: + An edition of the metrical metaphrasis of the Psalms of Manuel Philes (Team Vienna) + A monograph on book epigrams in Byzantine psalters (Team Ghent) + Proceedings of the Workshops 2020 (Ghent) and 2021 (Vienna) Andreas Rhoby (project leader) Anna Gioffreda (post-doc researcher, 01.07.2018-31.12.2020) Ugo Mondini (post-doc researcher, 01.03.2021-31.08.2022) PUBLICATIONS A.
