Biography

Lucinda Allen Mosher, Th.D., is Faculty Associate in Interfaith Studies. She directs Hartford Seminary’s Multifaith Chaplaincy Program, coordinates the annual Religious Diversity Leadership Workshop, and teaches courses on chaplaincy, religious diversity, and Christian-Muslim relations. Concurrently, she is Assistant Academic Director of the Building Bridges Seminar—an annual dialogue of Christian and Muslim scholars founded by the Archbishop of Canterbury and now under the stewardship of Georgetown University. She was the founding instructor for the annual Worldviews Seminar—an innovative introduction to America’s religious diversity held at the University of Michigan-Dearborn 2002-2012. As an interreligious relations consultant, her recent clients have included Auburn Theological Seminary’s Center for Multifaith Education, Seminary Consortium on Urban Pastoral Education, Unity Productions Foundation, and National Disaster Interfaiths Network.

Dr. Mosher is the author of Toward Our Mutual Flourishing: the Episcopal Church, Interreligious Relations, and Theologies of Religious Manyness (2012) and Faith in the Neighborhood—a book series on America’s religious diversity. With David Marshall, she is co-editor of and contributor to Prayer: Christian and Muslim Perspectives (2013); Death, Resurrection, and Human Destiny: Christian and Muslim Perspectives (2014); and The Community of Believers: Christian and Muslim Perspectives (forthcoming 2015). Other publications include several book-chapters and a number of articles on multifaith issues generally, Christian-Muslim concerns specifically, and the spiritual legacy of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi.

Dr. Mosher has been a keynote speaker, workshop leader, or panelist in many venues in the US and abroad—including England, Turkey, Uganda, and Korea. An accomplished musician, her workshops sometimes combine her expertise in interreligious understanding with her training in theology and the arts.

An Episcopal Church Foundation Fellow, Dr. Mosher holds degrees from Boston University, the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), Hartford Seminary, and a doctor of theology degree from the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church.
