Main content

When, where, why and by whom was the idea of religious pluralism invented? And when was the idea of superstition, that is, a differentiation within a religion between positive and negative worship developed? Was ancient polytheism more tolerant than monotheism? These are the main questions which will be discussed for different periods of antiquity.

Professor emeritus Jan N. Bremmer, ved Universitetet i Groningen, er en av verdens ledende forskere på antikkens religioner.

Foredraget blir fulgt av kortere kommentarer fra utvalgte deltagere.
