“NEW PHILOSOPHICAL AND THEOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS FOR CHRISTIAN-MUSLIM DIALOGUE”

scheduled to take place between May 27 – 29 2019

in Hotels Bernardin, Portorož, Slovenia

At this conference, we want to reconceptualize the question of the importance of an active and well informed interreligious dialogue. The focus will be on in-depth, philosophical-theological conversation between Christians and Muslims. In the form of dialogical panels the possibilities of mutual interreligious dialogue will be presented. The presentations will be enriched with two evening events, that is a Christian-Muslim prayer and a musical event of spiritual and religious chants.

The conference is co-oganized by the Institute for Philosophical Studies, Science and Research Centre Koper (Slovenia), the Iranian Association for Philosophy of Religion (Iran), the Centre for Comparative Theology and Cultural Studies, University of Paderborn (Germany), the European Academy of Sciences and Arts (EASA) – World Religions Class (Austria), and the Society for Comparative Religion (Slovenia).

The conference is held under the Honorary Patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor.

Conference is supported by the Slovenian Research Agency and the Netherlands embassy in the Republic of Slovenia.
