Bio

I am a research fellow at the National University of Public Service and associate professor of political science at Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Budapest. I was also a visiting scholar at the University of Notre Dame, taught at the Catholic University of Portugal and the University of Lapland. My research topics are democratic theory, the tyranny of the majority, and political theology, especially the political theology of democracy. 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.
