The clergy played a central part in many East-Central and South-Eastern European societies from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, in more fields than simply that of spiritual shepherding. Their broad spatial dissemination, their contacts with, in theory, all layers of society, their ties to various political environments made them apt intermediaries between the state and communities or individuals.

When Joachim Whaley and Peter H. Wilson published their studies on the Holy Roman Empire a few years ago, some reviewers expressed surprise that there was anything to be gained from the German model of federalism for the future of the European Union. Whaley and Wilson were pointing to a model of flexibility and stability long vanished from the collective memory or, if at all, remembered as a deficient structure.

Bertolt Brecht was confronted with the alien throughout his life. He was exposed to it everywhere he lived, and in all venues he inhabited, he was as a stranger among strangers. Furthermore, he made the experience of the alien into the linchpin of his entire artistic project. His plays, prose, and poetry, as well as the texts he wrote about theater and the other arts, about politics and society, tell us that the experience of being alien is the precondition for the possibility of a future community among strangers.
