I spent the academic year 1993/94 at NIAS as a member of the “Toleration-group”. A couple of times the group met in general sessions, where the results of our research were presented and discussed. Besides a paper on “Irénisme et Tolérance” prepared for the colloquium, I achieved during this year the goal I had set at the beginning: the preparation of a commented edition of Jean Hotman’s Syllabus of irenical literature.
