Mobility, conversion, religious hybridisms, identities on the move are the key words of the new historiographical season. By moving from multiple spaces and perspectives, scholars are questioning the interactions among distant societies and sometimes conflicting cultures. As it was not so unusual to cross political borders and overcoming religious boundaries, the Faith played a role in determining the Fate of normal people. This panel focuses on the elusive voices of individuals about their religious identities. Why do people speak about themselves, what they say and what they cautiously keep secret (and of course, those statements determine consequences) represent our main questions. We aim at opening new perspectives on the "emotional history" of the majorities-minorities interactions by researching sources that are not usually investigated to study individuals.
