Interreligious Dialogue

3 crédits - Optionelle Ouverte

This course aims at providing the students with the need and importance of ‘dialogue between religions’, in the context of the escalation of war and conflicts all over the world. The perpetrators of these wars/conflicts often seek legitimization in religion. The basic tenets, however, of all world religions are enshrined in justice, love, peace, mercy and compassion. The five sessions will be interactive; and they will be designed to help the students challenge stereo-types, myths and wrong beliefs through case studies and other examples. Efforts will also be made to “expose’ the students to other religions here in Beirut depending upon additional time availability.
