Biography

Heinz Schilling (born May 23, 1942) is a German historian.

Life

Heinz Schilling was born in Bergneustadt in Berg and grew up in Cologne. After studying history, German, philosophy and sociology at the University of Cologne and completing a state teaching certification, Schilling moved on to take a doctorate in 1971 at the University of Freiburg with a study of social and religious history of Dutch exiles, working with Gottfried Schramm. From 1971 to 1979 Schilling worked as an assistant and lecturer at the department of medieval history and then in early modern history at the newly founded Faculty of History at the University of Bielefeld. He completed his Habilitation there in 1977/78 with a case study of territorial societal history and "Confessionalization" (committee members Wolfgang Mager, Reinhart Koselleck and Bernd Moeller). From 1979 to 1982 he was professor of early modern history at the University of Osnabrück and from 1982 to 1992 professor at the University of Giessen. In 1992 he was appointed to the newly established chair of early modern European history as part of the foundation of the Institute of Historical Studies (Instituts für Geschichtswissenschaften) at the Humboldt University of Berlin, which he held until his retirement at the end of the 2010 summer semester.
