Welcome! I am Mariano Barbato. I do research on international relations, politics, religion, sociology, political theory, and history. My current project Legions of the Pope. A Case Study in Social and Political Transformation is funded by German Research Foundation (DFG) and based at the Center for Religion and Modernity, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster. The project examines papal pilgrims and pilgrim popes and how they support actorness, agency and influence of the Holy See in world society and international relations. I teach political science at Universität Passau.
