Submission deadline: Friday, August 9 2013 BST
Friday, November 8 2013 EST - Saturday, November 9 2013 EST
University of St. Michael's College
Jacques Maritain, firmly rooted in the Christian Source of his own conversion to Roman Catholicism, offers ample appreciation of the world’s other major religions. He acknowledges natural mystical experience, even graced encounter, among Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims. Most prominent is the attention Maritain gives to Judaism, having expressed strong public opposition to anti-Semitism before, during and after the Second World War, as well as having influenced the expression of Nostra Aetate, the Second Vatican Council document which seeks reconciliation with Judaism. Papers concerned with Maritain’s contribution to interreligious dialogue in general or in relation to specific religions are welcome, along with papers exploring interreligious dialogue from within a context other than the work of Jacques Maritain.
