Purpose: Freedom of religion is a subject, which has throughout human history been a source of profound disagreements and conflict. In contemporary transcultural world, religious-based intolerance continues to provide challenge for the whole ius commune of human rights. Design/Methodology/Approach: In this article, we take note that the protection of religious is an ethical and moral imperative for human rights standards in contemporary Europe. Findings: The article provides an overview of the complexities inherent in the freedom of religion within human rights law, especially focus on an analysis of the cultural-religious relativist debate in contemporary philosophical and legal disputes. Originality/Value: A philosophical and legal reflection on human rights in the aspect of religious freedom inspires to, if not requires, making a precise diagnosis of modern culture, analysing the causes of crises affecting modern man, in order to ultimately indicate the possible solutions and ways out.
