Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

A series of four workshops will discuss the complex processes through which religious communities create or defend their place in a given commonwealth, both in history and in our world today.

This first workshop addresses 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 reflect on historical examples of religious communities and attitudes negotiating their place in state and society.The concluding panel discussion will engage 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.
