This research project analysed how European masonic internationalism was caught between religious ties, national loyalties and universal aspirations to tolerance.
Historically, how were difference and inequality negotiated in Europe? What were the parts played by religion, society and politics? "On site, in time" takes a look at events that took place in European locations and that exemplify Europe¹s historical development since 1500. The c. 60 articles illustrate the various and conflict-ridden ways of negotiating differences and inequality. They depict strategies that were developed to promote, present, preserve, mitigate or abolish difference. Such strategies may include discussions, peaceful solutions and aid as well migration, mission and protest or even exclusion, war and destruction.
