  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Interfaith Dialogue; Comparative Religious Laws; Religious Pluralism.

This article is focused on the contribution that a careful comparison of the elements shared by different religious legal systems can offer in terms of social consensus, living and working together, religious peace. This analysis is required by the contemporary socioreligious reality, that marks the end of the existence of homogeneous religious groups: the institutionalization of religious pluralism, the individualisation of religious beliefs, the religious radicalization of certain movements and the weakening of the power of religious authorities over the members of their communities make a reflection on the interreligious dimension of the religious laws an indispensable tool to understand what is going on in France and other European countries.
