The two-day conference featured discussion and debate among thirty international scholars on the contributions of Christians and Christian ideas to freedom (political, civic, economic, and religious) historically and in the contemporary world. It was the culmination of a two-year research initiative, an undertaking of the Templeton Foundation-funded Religious Freedom Project of Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.
