Example text

Corcoran endeavours to bridge a fissure between the cultural and intellectual history of universities. He makes very productive use of a notion of charisma following Weber’s formulation and in response to William Clark. He argues against discounting the magical and supernatural connotations of charisma and maintains that they fit well with the ideas about the powers of the early modern professoriate promoted and propagated by demonologists. Corcoran examines the response of two scholars to this discourse: Hermann Goehausen and Christian Thomasius, both offering different perspectives on the charisma of the professor.

The shifts he observes map onto a more general transformation of the professorial ideal with the onset of the Enlightenment. Gráinne McLaughlin’s chapter brings into focus the political character of academic self-fashioning. Her work explores the response of an academic elite at Oxford to radical shifts in the system of government in a period of great and persistent turbulence during the mid-seventeenth century when the support of the Royalist cause left the university in a perilous position, politically and socially.
