Nick Mithen | Researcher

I am a PhD researcher at the European University Institute, where my research concerns erudite discourse on natural religion and civil society – the sacred and the profane – in the city of Naples between 1695 and 1725.

I situate my research in the interstices between intellectual history, urban history, the history of scholarship and the history of religion and belief.

My interest in the history of science stems from my interest in tracing the history of knowledge and thought in the broadest possible sense, and trying to understand how they interface with, and are absorbed by, social and material structures of life.

Before coming to the EUI, I studied History at King’s College London, and Philosophy at Fudan University in Shanghai.
