Restrictions with respect to religious freedom have been in
place in authoritarian states for a number of years. We can
observe a new period of co-operation between authoritarian
states and „state“ churches. Some churches have assumed a
clearly political position, even in belligerent conflicts,
by justifying wars, criminalizing their religious
competitors and, thereby, exploiting the Christian Gospel
for non-Christian purposes.

In this volume, scholars from Europe and North America
discuss the core objective of religious freedom in the West
and East seeking measures to encourage religions to act and
interact, independent of deliberate political stances – to
maintain their distance from territorial governments and to
strengthen the principle of religious freedom and, thereby,
their own denomination as well.
