Introduction:

The lecture is about the idea of Toleration, one of the most important ideas in the shaping of modern Europe. It will examine the different elements in the concept of toleration, its classical history in 16th to 18th Century Europe, and its decline in the 20th Century Europe as it is replaced by the principles of liberty and equality. Finally the lecture will explain the return of issues of toleration at recent times as contemporary Europe must deal again with different religions, cultures and value systems living together.
