Do Religions cause Wars?

There is no scholarly agreement on which are the most common motivations for war. Motivations may be different for those ordering the war than for those undertaking the war.

This is an endeavor to analyse the role of religion as a cause of wars through the history, remove misconceptions to understand the real cause of wars to avoid them, if possible. Continue reading
