Religious diversity goes back to the dawn of religion itself. Each religious tradition always had to reckon with the ‘other’ – those who do not subscribe to its particular teachings, rituals, and code of conduct. The forum will explore how Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have grappled with the fact of religious diversity and how each tradition has defined and practically interacted with those outside its own communal boundaries.
