What is the nature of the divine-human relationship? What happens when we die? (And, what will happen to my other-faith neighbor?) That is, what is the status, according to “my” religion, of other religions’ adherents? For millennia, worldview questions such as these have been the topic of much debate and written discourse. Making use of the emerging discipline of comparative theology and working from the premise that “theology of religious manyness” is a better formulation than “theology of religions,” this course will explore a range of theologies of interreligious engagement from Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, and Christian points of view.
