Intereligious Dialogue

In an Age of Volcanoes and Refugees

In this conference we would like to rediscover why fraternal encounter with people from far-off lands is so important today. We’ll try to sketch the shape of Christian-Muslim relations as they were for the first decade or so of this century. Then, we’d explore some of the ways in which we see a new era dawning which is fundamentally different to that of the 20th Century. Finally, we will draw a few conclusions with regard to a fragmented future of dialogue and encounter on the one hand and violence and misunderstanding on the other.

Damian Howard SJ is a Jesuit priest. Formerly he lectured in interreligious relations at Heythrop College, University of London.

He writes and broadcasts on issues relating to Islam and Muslim-Christian relations. From 2017 until a few weeks ago he was Provincial Superior of the Jesuits in Great Britain.
