Chapter Summary

Although being today on everybody's lips and having enjoyed widespread popularity for quite some time, the term "multiculturalism" remains ambiguous. The Institute of International Public Law and International Relations in Thessaloniki, Greece, dedicated its 2004 annual session to the theme of "multiculturalism and international law". Church for centuries over was the primatial authority of the Roman Pontiff. The existence of 21 Eastern Churches, plus the Latin Church, within the Catholic Church may be news to those thinking of Catholicism as a monolith regarding not only its patrimony of revealed and moral truth (which is obviously one and the same for everyone; otherwise it would not be the truth) but also its liturgical and spiritual tradition. In 1927, Lithuania had concluded with the Holy See a concordat which Lithuania unilaterally denounced at the time of the Soviet occupation and annexation in 1940.
