Interreligious dialogue has gained central importance during the last 20 years in the academic as well as in the public arena. A strongly dialogically oriented theology was developed in recent years in the context of a five-year research project called ReDi: Religion and Dialogue in Modern Societies, housed at the Academy of World Religions, Hamburg University, Germany. In an interdisciplinary and internationally comparative approach, researchers in Scandinavia, England, Germany, and the United States from different religious traditions studied interreligious dialogue and produced an approach called dialogical theology.

This presentation featured Wolfram Weisse, who led the ReDi project. He discussed the design of the project and then focused on the approach of dialogical theology, explaining its concept and highlighting the main results of the research, namely a newly developed dialogical interreligious hermeneutics.

Lunch was served.

This event was co-sponsored by Georgetown University's Department of Theology and its Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.
