THEO 105 - Introduction to Interfaith Studies

3 hours
This course investigates a range of theological and philosophical warrants and resources within particular religious traditions, including Catholic Christianity, for engaging constructively with other religious and nonreligious worldviews. It explores efforts to establish common ground while understanding the dynamics of conflict. It studies significant moments in the history of interfaith interchange, with particular attention to developments following the 1893 World Parliament of Religions held in Chicago. Students will analyze and have some direct experience with contemporary interfaith organizations and initiatives, including those that foster theological dialogue, the sharing of religious and spiritual experience, and cooperative action in an effort to promote “a more just and humane world.”
