Abstract

At the dawn of the 21st century, religion plays a central role in public life, today it is an important sign of identity. In a world exposed to conflicts which are always likely to lead to acts of violence, the exchanges between cultures offer more than ever possibilities of encounter of dialogue and peace: "intercultural and interreligious dialogue is a vital necessity" 3


Exchanges between cultures promote mutual knowledge and mutual respect and imply that we take into account the religions themselves, especially since religious experience is often inscribed at the very heart of culture4. Certainly, cultures are themselves very different, their differences are not only due to the diversity of their languages ​​and their lifestyles, but also to the fact that they do not necessarily convey the same representations of the world, of history or the human person.


key words: religion, respect, diversity, interreligious, human person
