Interreligious Theology

A new episode of the video series “Religion and Politics – Research Projects in Focus“

No world peace without peace between religions: Scholar of Religious Studies and theologian Prof. Dr. Perry Schmidt-Leukel examines what the great world religions think of each other and how they explain that there are more religious traditions other than their own. Never before has mankind been more aware of how many religions there are than today. This harbours a great potential for conflicts, says the scholar of religious studies in a new episode of the video series Research Projects in Focus. If the religions and theologies manage, however, to come closer together, this has great potential for peace. The film gives insight into his research project “Interreligious Theology” at the Cluster of Excellence “Religion and Politics” of Münster University. (maz/vvm)
