Narratives on Europe today, are often characterised by conflicting views on the relationship between religion and society. However, historical dimensions of these narratives have often been neglected in sociological research, and at the same time, the voices of religious people remain largely absent from legal and political discourses. The RETOPEA project will carry out both research and innovation activities to tackle this challenge.
The project focuses on representations of peace in visual arts, music, poetry and other literal forms in Early Modern Europe, which were deliberately used as instruments to promote peace in the public sphere.
