Religion, Violence, and Ideology

Reflections on the Challenges of Postmodern World

Edited by: Vojko Strahovnik, Bojan Zalec

The question about the role of religion as a factor of overcoming violence and of fostering intercultural dialogue is among the key challenges of the postmodern world. The contributions in the book specifically focus on the interplay between the phenomena of religion, ideology, and violence. The topics addressed include: the question of origins of violence in secular modernity; radical Islamism and totalitarianism; the relationship between faith, humility, and a theological vision of peace; the relationship between metaphysics and violence; the anthropology of myth and violence; gender-based violence; democracy; human rights; cosmopolitan justice and religion; and religious communities as agents of hospitality.
