Symposium: 'Theology of Religions and Comparative Theology'

A Conversation with Professor Francis Clooney. An International Symposium.

Both professor Balagangadhara and researcher Sarah Claerhout give a lecture in this symposium.

Objectives:

The aim of this symposium is to examine the relationship between theology of religions and comparative theology.
On the basis of Francis Clooney’s most recent book Comparative
Theology: Deep Learning across Religious Borders, we will embark on a conversation with Professor Clooney about this complex relationship, and we will do so from a variety of religious
perspectives. Scholars from the Catholic, Muslim, and Hindu traditions will be present to offer their questions and insights.
