Bridging the Great Divide: the Jewish-Muslim Encounter
About The Event
Starting Date: January 11, 2021
Application Deadline: December 13, 2020
The course is accessed via Hedwig (Moodle) which is hosted by the Cambridge Theological Federation.
Despite their closeness in belief and practice, today, Jewish-Muslim interactions are often the source of intense religious conflict. This course will explore the history, culture and theology of Muslims and Jews, reflecting both on similarities and differences as well as discussing the major challenges.
Assisted by leading experts and early career scholars, the course will also offer strategies for building bridges between the communities. While there has been notable interfaith activity in Europe and the United States in recent decades, the Jewish-Muslim dialogue and understanding are far from satisfactorily developed.
