Political and transcendental authority are problematic in themselves and at odds with each other. Each religion has defining moments when the core questions become contested and are opened for debate, modification and change. Where is authority coming from or based upon? How is authority defined, invested and limited? Who wields authority, and how does it become legitimized and delegitimized?
Fscire and the International Network on Interreligious Research and Education (INIRE) invite proposals for the international conference ‘Religion and Authority: Contest and Legitimacy’, to be held in Palermo July 5-9, 2020.
Paper proposals will be received before January 15, 2020.
