Georgetown-Campion Hall Seminars

In partnership with Campion Hall—the Jesuit community at Oxford Community—the Berkley Center supports a range of seminars designed to promote interreligious understanding, and Muslim-Christian dialogue in particular. Since June 2012, the center has supported an Understanding Islam course, designed for Catholic clerics based in the United Kingdom. The course addresses topics including law, prayer life, Islamic perspectives on Christianity, and Islam in Britain. Reverend Dr. David Marshall, a research fellow of the Berkley Center, and Dr. Damian Howard, S.J., lecturer in theology at Heythrop College, have served as conveners. A previous seminar series, held during the 2010-2011 academic year, brought Roman Catholic and Anglican scholars together around the theme “Christian Theological Engagement with Islam.” Topics included Muhammad; the Qur’an; prayer and devotional life; and law and society. PDFs of revised versions of several of the papers given at these seminars are available on this site.
