EDR 332 Interreligious and Interfaith Dialogue
Dialogue between Christians, Jews, and Muslims has become increasingly important in the twenty-first century. What are these faith traditions, what are their basic beliefs and sacred texts (and the prejudices and stereotypes that accompany them), and how do people who align themselves with these traditions worship? These questions are examined through the practice of genuine dialogue that fosters unity, validation, and work for the common good. In this way, students can understand their own religious tradition more deeply in relation to other traditions. The practicality of interreligious and interfaith work is considered. This course is both theoretical and experiential, requiring students to visit a synagogue, church, and mosque outside of class sessions.
