Religious pluralism : a resource book
Title: Religious pluralism : a resource book
Citation: Florence : European University Institute, 2015
Human societies have always been diverse but the modern period is distinctive, shaped by new forms of communication, global migration and media that have given rise to more pronounced and more established forms of diversity and perhaps even to ‘hyper-diversity’. This publication concentrates on religious diversity and it provides a set of conceptual and theoretical resources for approaching different discourses around religious diversity, highlighting in particular the distinctive approaches and sensitivities that emerge from different disciplinary engagements.
