At Petriplatz, a common prayer and study house for the three monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is in the creation. It is not yet built, but has been presented at panel discussions at various locations around the city.
The history of religions is also a history of their changes. Must every belief system – caught between the preservation of traditional beliefs and the adaptation to changing social and political conditions – reinvent itself time and again?
