Catholics in Interreligious Dialogue

Monasticism, Theology and Spirituality

Edited by Anthony O’Mahoney & Peter Bowe, OSB

This volume brings together a wide-ranging and engaging series of studies that witness to the depth of theological reflection that the contemporary Christian monastic and scholarly community is engaged in as religious traditions seek to understand and relate to each other in a global context. Here are reflections on encounters with Buddhism, where the main efforts of monastic interreligious dialogue have been directed, with Hinduism and with Islam (from St. Francis to the Cistercian Martyrs of Algeria). As well as profiling the history and current witness of monastic interreligious dialogue, the volume also contains studies of the great pioneers of this work—Charles de Foucauld, Bede Griffiths, Louis Massignon, Henri Le Saux (Abhishiktananda) and Thomas Merton.
