Reformation and World Religions

Conference on the Reformation and World Religions

Organized by the Council for Theological Education in Montreal (Cite-M), the Center for Research on Religion (CREOR), the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul, and the School of Religious Studies (SRS), McGill University.

October 30-31, 2017

This conference focuses on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in light of the rich, many sided and often conflict laden relations between the Reformation and the world’s religions. Papers will address a selection of topics involving central aspects of the relationship between the history of the Reformation with the Catholic Church, with Judaism, Islam, and the Asian religions, as well as with the Indigenous people and the inter- religious dialogue. A central question in all papers will be what we can learn from the past to make our present and future better, especially in the context of inter-religious contacts in Quebec and Canada and in light of the growing influence of religion and globalization. A panel discussion will close this colloquium, which will be open to the public. For the full program, click here
