In our time there are a number of divisive issues: refugee crisis, climate change Brexit which are dividing people. In the sixteenth centure, few issues were as divisive as the question of religion.
Since 1517, the movement known as the Reformation had divided the religion of Europe: Christians were now enemies dividing between Protestants and Catholics.
In sixteenth century France, these division between Huguenots and Catholics send the country into civil war.
It is during that period of conflict that Jean Bodin wrote a text entitled the Colloquium of the seven about secrets of the sublime. It is a long text that engages with key issues on the nature of religion and religious truth and provides an interesting model to think about toleration.
