Location: Copley Hall Copley Formal Lounge

For the ninth seminar, held in May 2010, Building Bridges returned to Georgetown University. The seminar explored a range of Christian and Muslim approaches to different aspects of the interface between the two faiths and the modern world. On the first day of the seminar public lectures addressed topics such as changing patterns in religious authority and different conceptions of freedom emerging in the modern world. On the second and third days the seminar participants engaged in detailed discussion of texts from outstanding modern thinkers in both traditions. At the closing public session, Archbishop Rowan Williams reviewed the work of the whole seminar, and, together with a panel of participants, responded to questions from the audience. The proceedings of this seminar are available in PDF form, provided by Georgetown University Press.
