Abstract :
In his reply, Guido Vanheeswijck expresses his agreement to the central ‘hunch’ of Mendus’ article with regard to the status of the political standard narrative about the liberal view on the relation between religion and violence. However, taking some distance from Mendus, he tries to make it clear that the relation between violence and religion is obvious, but not inevitable (contra Skinner) and that the tensions between religion and modernity – couched in a terminological contrast between enchantment and disenchantment – are palpable indeed but not inescapable (contra Larmore).
