Georgetown-Campion Hall Seminars
Over recent years there have been numerous new initiatives in Christian-Muslim dialogue. In the course of the 2010-2011 academic year a series of four 24-hour seminars on “Christian Theological Engagement with Islam” has been held at Campion Hall, the Jesuit community in Oxford. The purpose of these seminars has been to enable a group of Roman Catholic and Anglican scholars active in such dialogue to reflect together on some of the questions which it poses. In order to deepen their own capacity – and that of Christians more widely – to engage effectively and with Christian authenticity in further dialogue with Muslims, they considered questions of Christian response to key aspects of the faith and practice of Islam: Muhammad; the Qur’ān; prayer and devotional life; law and society. The group has included both Christian scholars of Islam and also specialists in different aspects of Christian theology. These seminars have been supported by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, Georgetown University, Washington DC and organized by the Revd Dr. David Marshall, a Research Fellow of the Berkley Center. PDFs of revised versions of several of the papers given at these seminars are available below.
