A conference examining the extent to which there are intellectual resources within each of the world's major religions supporting tolerance for adherents of other religions. (12 months)

The study conference at Bard sets forth how theological attitudes of toleration yield forbearance. Case-studies ask: what are the religious resources of tolerance that a given religious tradition possesses? And what are the countervailing ideas? In the answers we discern the possibilities of conciliation between and among religions. This forms part of an international conference program planned for the USA, Italy (University of Bologna for Europe) and Egypt (American University of Cairo for North Africa and the Middle East), on how world-religions nurture in the faithful the attitude of toleration for those outside their own religious communities
