Descrizione
This book examines the historic tensions between Jehovah's Witnesses and government authorities, civic organisations, established churches and the broader public. Witnesses originated in the 1870s as small, loose-knit groups calling themselves Bible Students. Today, there are some eight million Witnesses worldwide, all actively engaged in evangelism under the direction of the Watch Tower Society. The author analyses issues that have brought them global visibility and even notoriety, including political neutrality, public ministry, blood transfusion, and anti-ecumenism. It also explores anti-Witness discourse, from media portrayals of the community as marginal and exotic to the anti-cult movement. Focusing on varied historical, ideological and national contexts, the book argues that Witnesses have had a defining influence on conceptions of religious tolerance in the modern world.

This book examines the historic tensions between Jehovah's Witnesses and government authorities, civic organisations, established churches and the broader public. Witnesses originated in the 1870s as small, loose-knit groups calling themselves Bible Students. Today, there are some eight million Witnesses worldwide, all actively engaged in evangelism under the direction of the Watch Tower Society. The author analyses issues that have brought them global visibility and even notoriety, including political neutrality, public ministry, blood transfusion, and anti-ecumenism. It also explores anti-Witness discourse, from media portrayals of the community as marginal and exotic to the anti-cult movement. Focusing on varied historical, ideological and national contexts, the book argues that Witnesses have had a defining influence on conceptions of religious tolerance in the modern world.

Questo libro esamina le storiche tensioni tra i Testimoni di Geova e le autorità governative, le organizzazioni civiche, le chiese stabilite e il pubblico più ampio. I testimoni sono nati negli anni '70 del 1800 come piccoli gruppi a maglie larghe che si chiamavano Studenti Biblici. Oggi ci sono circa otto milioni di Testimoni in tutto il mondo, tutti attivamente impegnati nell'evangelizzazione sotto la direzione della Watch Tower Society. L'autore analizza le questioni che hanno portato loro visibilità globale e persino notorietà, tra cui la neutralità politica, il ministero pubblico, la trasfusione di sangue e l'anti-ecumenismo. Esplora anche i discorsi anti-Testimoni, dai ritratti dei media della comunità come marginali ed esotici al movimento anti-sette. Concentrandosi su vari contesti storici, ideologici e nazionali, il libro sostiene che i Testimoni hanno avuto un'influenza determinante sui concetti di tolleranza religiosa nel mondo moderno.
