■Intention
Germany is known as the birthplace of the Reformation and as a major Christian country. At the same time, it is a multi-cultural society where Jews, Muslims, and other people with various religious backgrounds live together. This lecture, bringing perspectives on religion, society, and culture, will illustrate issues that the country faces in regard to coexistence and "multi-culturism" as well as attempts being made in this area.
