n International Journal for Religious Freedom - Religious extremism - religious tolerance : editorial

Volume 7, Issue 1_2
  • ISSN : 2070-5484



Religious extremism is considered as one of the major causes of contemporary religious persecution, whereas religious tolerance is a foundation of religious freedom. This dual topic covers most of the articles in this issue and its terminology is inspired by the opinion piece of Thomas K. Johnson on "Religious extremism" and the report on the research project "Measuring religious tolerance ..." by Johannes van der Walt et al. Johnson holds that religious extremism must be understood as a result of a quest for meaning. To address it, religious and civil communities must offer appropriate life-giving meanings.
