Negotiating Religion

Workshop 1: European Legacies, European Challenges

23 November 2011

This first workshop addressed the history of religious conflict and accommodation, and gauges the impact of religious skepticism and secularization in Europe.

After a keynote on the relationship of public reasoning and religious commitment, discussing the role of forgiveness in economic relations and the impact the notion of the journey of the soul has for setting health care priorities, four papers reflected on historical examples of religious communities and attitudes negotiating their place in state and society.

The concluding panel discussion engaged a group of outstanding experts and the public in a discussion on a more visible and proactive investigation of the relationship between religion and society at UCL.
