In this course, the participants will explore the very meaning of 'interfaith dialogue', especially in the context of Abrahamic faiths, as well as learning different perspectives on its relevance in contemporary world. Among the questions we will raise are the following: In what is interfaith dialogue different when it is organized by heads of religious organizations (top-down), from interfaith dialogue run by lay members' initiatives (grassroots)? Has the very concept of interfaith dialogue lost its 'bite' today (by being used so frequently and often casually), or does it have the same relevancy today as it has had in the 20th century? Is interfaith dialogue between Abrahamic faiths more or less important than secular conversations on ethical and political matters which aim to include believers of all faiths and none?
