Salzburg Tolerance Talks


Prof. Mariano Delgado, Dean of Class VII, World Religions, organized and moderated the program together with Vice- Dean Prof. Jean Ehret, who hosted a round table called "Universal Fraternity and Social Friendship". Speakers shared their perspectives of different religions in the world.

Discussants dealt with questions of how to live together more peacefuly and what should we improve in order to respect different religions? Everyone has their personal right to profess their faith. Human dignity requires religious freedom. Universal brotherhood means coexistence of several religions and mutual respect for one another. The speakers agreed that religious representatives should take part in political matters, because religion as such cannot be isolated from politics.

In times of global crises, we should focus on global ethics and so-called religious ‘elite‘ should play more important and a new role as responsible players, who will lead the local and religious elite should lead the local and global society towards a better tomorrow.
