The End of a Parenthesis? Understanding Cold War Religion in Light of the Present Crisis
Seminar on Cold War religion with Katharina Kunter (University of Helsinki), Tornike Metreveli and Emil Saggau (both Lund University)
The war in Ukraine rekindles memories of the Cold War and re-actualises some of its inherent conflicts and lines of demarcation. In this seminar, three scholars shed light on the current European situation by offering historical perspectives on the complexities of European religion.
