During my stay at NIAS I collected lexicographical material about the concept of Toleration. To these end I consulted Dutch and foreign dictionaries and other studies on meta-language. These data will be used for an article about the semantic value and the semantic changes in the concept of Toleration in the period from 1600 till present.
