Disquiet over the prevalence of social and economic individualism has a long history. In a world of mobile Capital and increasingly mobile people, communities of common tradition and locality appear to be under threat from the advent of a fragmented market society. Are these complaints against individualism justified? And crucially, how should Christians respond to them? Digging down into the substance of these questions, this project will consider the theological, liturgical and scriptural resources Christians have for understanding the notion of individualism in relation to issues of education, public life and the formation of democratic citizenship.

‘Mary Stuart’, Sunday 22nd March 2014 

Dr. Michael Hoelzl is discussing with Christian von Treskow who is the director of a contemporary interpretation of Friedrich Schiller’s play ‘Mary Stuart’ on Sunday 22nd March 2014 at the Opernhaus Wuppertaler Bühnen in Germany. The theme of this public discussion (Matinée) is the constellation of Faith, Power and Politics as it is exemplified by the struggle between Queen Elizabeth I. and Mary Queen of Scots. Faith, Power and Politics circumscribe the very important political and legal  issue of the concept sovereignty today. The subtitle of Schiller’s play seem to anticipate of what came shortly after the execution of Queen Mary in 1587 , the writing of the play by Schiller in 1800 and its rediscovery by Stefan Zweig in the 20th century (1935): A tragedy.
