PALATIUM is a Research Networking Programme (RNP) financed by the European Science Foundation (ESF). It brings together scholars from different fields across Europe to promote transdisciplinary and transnational research on Court Residences as Places of Exchange in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe (1400-1700). During its five-year running period (2010-2015), PALATIUM stimulated exchanges of knowledge and experience on this topic between historians, architectural historians, art historians and researchers from related disciplines in various meetings, workshops, conferences, and summer schools.
Between 2010 and 2015 PALATIUM has organized a total of 22 science meetings. The final event was held in Munich in March 2015. The results of these meetings are currently being published in 15 different volumes. Most of these publications are freely availabe in open access on this website.
Registered members receive the quarterly PALATIUM Newsletter, which announces upcoming events, calls, and publications. Registration is free, fast and easy.
