Prof. Dr. Angelika Dörfler-Dierken
Religion and war seem sometimes like sisters. Religions have legitimated wars, and wars used religion to legitimate the sufferings and the victims. If you want to stop war you should understand how the relationship between religion and war worked. To understand the tradition of the justification of war will enable you to understand the methods of emotionalization of politics. Beside this tradition you will explore the possibility of a tradition of peace and reconciliation. Peace begins in peaceful thoughts, it begins in a brave heart and it has to be exercised in daily life.
