Session 3, Intensive, TBC
In the context of increasing religious plurality in Australia, this subject introduces students to the principles of interfaith dialogue and also allows for dialogue between different religious traditions. It examines how such dialogue may, from a Christian perspective, assist with the building of tolerance and understanding of religious traditions other than Christianity. In order to promote students’ capacity to engage in interfaith dialogue, the subject examines one religious tradition, namely Islam, in depth. The subject explores the history, beliefs, practices and thought of Islam, as well as key issues arising from the historic relationships between Christianity and Islam.
