 (v.l.) An Italian-Japanese seminar, fruit of a collaboration between Fondazione Bruno Kessler and the Waseda University (Tokyo) has been scheduled in Trento for Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26, 2016. The event, with unique features in Italy, aims to prompt dialogue between historiographies that have very distant cultural backgrounds, but are very similar as far as the topics of interest are concerned. The topic that will be addressed by the international experts during the study sessions will be the link between violence and religion, as analyzed by the biblical texts up to the Middle Ages and the modern age. 

"The initiative," emphasizes FBK researcher and member of the Scientific Committee Fernanda Alfieri "is at its third consecutive year, thus confirming the consolidation of a collaboration between the Historical Institute of Fondazione Bruno Kessler and the Japanese research team, funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, as well as the cohesion of the group of scholars that has formed around this event. "

The works will be held in English, starting at 9:30 am on Friday, November 25 at FBK,on via S. Croce in Trento.
