In the 21st century man understands himself and the social reality in which he lives better. The global context of today's world takes man out of his cultural-religious isolation and places him in the reality of his relationship with otherness. Not an easy task, but a necessary one. Our study proposes an analysis of what we can call dialogical identity, as an agent of active involvement in the dynamics of constructive relations between religions.
