Scholars from the Departments of History, Medieval Studies, Sociology and Anthropology at the Central European University (CEU) engaged here in discussion with researchers of the “Vision Thing” group that grew out from the 2007-2008 Summer Institute of CASBS Stanford and Collegium Budapest, directed by William A. Christian Jr. and Gábor Klaniczay, and the ERC funded “East-West research group on ethnology of religion” originally at the University of Pécs and currently at the Institute of Ethnology of the Research Center for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA BKK), directed by Éva Pócs. The CEU Humanities Initiative was funding this discussion on the state of scholarship, the theoretical aspects and new perspectives on the research on visions, and CEU Center for Religious Studies provided the organizational framework.
