Christian medieval Europe bad.

ENI--In an address to a European gathering of mainly Anglican, Orthodox and Protestant churches, the leader of the Fiomanian Orthodox Church warned against attempts to restore a "Christian medieval Europe" as a response to increasing religious plurality.

"We will have to become more and more used to religious pluralism, with respect for the others, without falling into doctrinal or moral relativism," Patriarch Daniel said at the Conference of European Churches.

"in this very complex context, which is, certainly, permanently changing and a great challenge for the churches, we cannot afford to be nostalgic by attempting to restore a Christian medieval Europe," said the Orthodox leader.
