Can people coexist in peace when their basic beliefs are irreconcilable? Kaplan responds by taking us back to early modern Europe, when the issue of religious toleration was no less pressing than it is today. This compelling story reveals that toleration has taken many guises in the past and suggests that it may well do the same in the future.
