World Christianity in Intercultural and Interreligious Perspectives

In this course, taught by Joanne Doi at Catholic Theological Union, students will be introduced to Christianity as the truly global phenomenon it has always been. Students will explore how historical and cultural context shapes religious experience, in general, and how it shapes ways of being Christian, in particular. Special attention will be given to diversity within the Catholic tradition, the diversity of other Christian confessions (i.e. ecumenism), and the ways in which Christian communities have developed and continue to evolve in interaction and relationship with communities of other religious faiths.
