Scholars From Throughout U.S. to Gather Here for Oct. 12-13 Conference on Interfaith Relations
The Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning will host the symposium “Christian Faith in a Multifaith World” from Oct. 12-13 in the Anderson Student Center’s James B. Woulfe Alumni Hall on the St. Paul campus of the University of St. Thomas. Marking the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s landmark document on interfaith relations, the symposium will feature a keynote address on the legacy of the document as well as four sessions devoted to relations between Christians and members of the four religions other than Christianity mentioned in the document: Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism.
Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning Launches New Bibliography
Collaboration across the University of St. Thomas and with interreligious scholar Dr. Jan Phillips has yielded a new extensive online research tool: the Jan Phillips Bibliography of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – and their Encounters. The bibliography, which is free and accessible to anyone, is a compilation of sources across history, including books, articles and periodicals, that reference interreligious engagements. Phillips taught courses on Jewish history, Islamic history and Jewish-Christian encounter at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul for 20 years, and began compiling a database of interreligious sources to help in teaching his classes.
