The Religious Situation in Germany and Europe Today

The role of religion in European society and politics is undergoing far-reaching changes. The growth of Muslim minorities and the decline of established churches have generated greater religious pluralism at a time when the role of religion in the public sphere is increasingly contested. At this lunchtime seminar, Friedrich Wilhelm Graf, a leading German Protestant theologian based at the University of Munich, discussed the contemporary religious situation in Germany and Europe and the challenges that lie ahead. The Berkley Center's José Casanova moderated the discussion.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the German Research Foundation.
