PSTHE 270 Interreligious Dialogue and Organizational Dynamics

3 Credits

This course is designed to introduce learners to the principles of interreligious dialogue, while offering a survey of the world’s major religious traditions.  In the second half of the course, students learn the various ways in which an increased understanding of the faith traditions of others might enhance professional growth, conflict resolution, and leadership in organizations.  In addition to studying the scriptures, moral-ethical teachings, and faith practices of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, learners explore various interreligious initiatives around the world that are designed to resolve conflict and build mutual understanding and trust within communities and organizations, including the Catholic Common Ground Initiative (www.catholiccommonground.org) and the Franciscan Pace e Bene Nonviolence Service, which has produced teaching materials on the historic meeting between Saint Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt in 1219 AD.
