About

Many of us no longer live in culturally and religiously homogenous
societies, but rather in pluralistic societies. Here, different
religions live side by side, sometimes in mutual understanding, but
sometimes also in conflict. This has made the study of interreligious
relations an important field for scholars of religion and theologians
alike.

This course deals with central concepts, theories and positions
in the study of interreligious relations, such as dialogue, ecumenism,
freedom of religion, conversion, exclusivism, inclusivism, pluralism,
and the theology of religion. Contemporary problems and challenges are
foregrounded, and questions are studies from the perspective of
different religions, as well as in the light of research in both
religious studies and theology.
