Religious Factor in Civilization Conflicts: The Religious National Character as Breakthrough Point

Mengting TANG


After the “cold war”, in the field of international politics and international relations, the ideological conflicts weaken, and religious cultural conflicts become the main factors of the instability of the world and the new focus of conflicts. Because religious belief is the main characteristic to distinguish the civilization, the religious war almost breaks out between different ethnic groups who have different religious beliefs. As religious nationality reflects the intimate relationship between religion and nationality, from the national character of religion, analyzing the religious factors in the conflict of civilization can grasp the era characteristics of religious culture, take targeted measures with the advancing times and transform the religious culture gradually. So that can we reduce the international civilization conflicts.
