Ring Parables – Experiments In Religion And Tolerance

On occasion of the anniversary of the Reformation in 2017

Centralstation, Darmstadt
Im Carree
Admission free

The “ring parable” in Gotthold Ephraim Lessing’s drama “Nathan the Wise” (1779), develops a utopia of religious tolerance, and seems to be highly topical in the light of the numerous religiously motivated conflicts and wars.

Egyptologist Jan Assmann, cultural scientist Almút Sh. Bruckstein and historian Dan Diner consider whether the idea of a humanity that unites all people is even conceivable today. Heinrich Detering will moderate the discussion.

Event at Centralstation
