Revision of beliefs is a common practice. An opinion that once was considered right, is now considered wrong. Especially when the former opinion was communicated to a broader public, an explicit revision might raise questions. People tend to explain their revision to justify their change. My area of interest in this study is in the revision of religious beliefs. Research questions in this dissertation are: (1) How do people justify their revision of religious beliefs? (2) How did this revision take place? (3) How can the revision be assessed intellectually? And more general: (4) What can we learn from the analysis of these revisions and their intellectual justification regarding the possibility of assessing intellectually the revisions of religious beliefs?
