Alterity and Interreligious Dialogue

About

The program of conferences and debates aims at promoting cultural and religious diversity, in the framework of religious affirmation as global phenomenon. During a four weeks period, significant professionals from the region and from abroad will approach specific dimensions of alterity/ otherness and of dialogue, both as research topics and as challenges of the present day, the whole methodology being an interdisciplinary one.

Promoting the cultural and religious diversity is not a value per se, but rather a pre-requisite of living together. Tolerance and dialogue should be the major factors of the dynamism of inter-community relations and of bringing together the people. To this respect, our program seeks that, by analyzing the inter-religious dialogue, to seize both its profound dimensions, and its integrative ones, both the symbolic aspects, and the practical ones.
