CEGR 1010. Living with Jews & Muslims in a Post-Holocaust, Post-9/11 World. (0 Credits)
There are tensions in any interreligious situation to try to ignore various elephants in the room. For Catholic and other Christians living with Jews,old stereotypes and old prejudices on both sides die slowly, although many Catholics are aware that the Church's official attitude towards Jews changed at Vatican II. Fewer Catholics are aware taht the Church's attitude toward Muslims also changed at Vatican II, and those changed may be difficult for some to understand in the wake of the past decade or more of Muslim-Christian tensions throughout the world. With the readings suggested in the attached folder, some advances may be made towards improving Catholic and other Christian understanding of these two dialogues essential towards a peaceful future.
