The Department of History, Archaeology and Museology of the Faculty of History and Philology of 1 Decembrie 1918 University Alba Iulia is organizing the international symposium Confessional identity and religious tolerance in the 18th-21st centuries between 14th 15th October 2011. The central topic of debate will be the tolerance politics of Emperor Joseph II (premises, meanings, consequences) and, on a larger scale, the change of connotations of religious tolerance towards contemporaneity. From this perspective, the aspects to be approached concern the meanings of tolerance (philosophical, theological, religious, secular), confessional and religious perspectives on tolerance, tolerance in Islam, tolerance as revelator for relations between the state and the Church, attitudes and political decisions referring to tolerance, consequences of tolerance politics (confessional mobility, construction of worship edifices, education) confessional and cultural identities, interconfessional relations, tolerance within interconfessional and contemporaneous interreligious dialogue.
