Students receive an introduction to the theory and practice of interreligious cooperation in social ethics focusing on India. They know the texts and practices discussed in the course and are able to critically reflect upon them. Furthermore, they are able to develop their own perspectives on the socio-ethical dimension of interreligious dialogue.

  • a) Jesus and his attitude towards other religions in the New Testament b) Jesus as a way towards interreligious dialogue in Asia c) Jesus as a way towards the liberation of the poor in Asia (cf. Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences [FABC]).
  • Work grounded in Nostra Aetate and documents by the FABC. Based on the values of the Kingdom of God, how can the church together with other religions support peace, harmony and freedom / salvation?
  • Swamy Vivekananda, his attitude towards other religions and interreligious dialogue as well as the liberation of the poor and oppressed in India.

Theoretical work will be deepened through concrete examples of interreligious dialogue, e.g. showing pictures and short films etc.
