Il caso (azda) Posledná večera: libertà d’espressione e verità religiosa nel processo di democratizzazione slovacco
The article explores, through the case of Martin Kasarda’s novel (azda) Posledná večera (1991) and the ensuing controversy and complaints of public insult against the author and the publishers by some members of the Slovak Parliament, the article explores the difficult process of democratization in Slovakia during the period following the end of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. The author focuses on the clashes between two fundamental civic rights such as freedom of speech and freedom of religion, and between culture and politics. The article compares the Slovak case with other contemporary situations such as complaints against Martin Scorsese’s film The Last Temptation of Christ and the issue of Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses.
