Bio

I am associate professor of political science at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University, and director of the Research Institute for Religion and Society at the University of Public Service, Budapest. I also taught at the Catholic University of Portugal, the Babes-Bolyai University in Romania, and the University of Lapland, Finland. My research topics are democratic theory, the tyranny of the majority, and (so-called) secular religions. I published three books in Hungarian: The Five-Headed Eagle: Theology and Politics in the French Counterrevolution (Attraktor, 2014); An Introduction to End Times: The Historical Mysticism of the Abbot Joachim (Attraktor 2015); and Political Theologies from Democracy to Ecology (Typotex 2018). My English language book The Tyranny of the Majority: History, Concepts, and Challenges was published by Routledge in 2018 (hardcover) and 2020 (paperback).
