This seminar will explore connections between the church-state relationship and religious diversity, in the early modern period and today. To what extent are 16th- and 17th-century debates about religious toleration concerned with the structural arrangement of sacred and secular jurisdictions? And how can research on the early modern period shed light on contemporary debates about religious discord and the place of religion within civil society?
