Catholicism In An Ecumenical World

Catholic Perspectives in World Religions

  • Welcome!

    Welcome to the site of the course Catholicism In An Ecumenical World. As we are able to access more of the world with our fingertips, we can also take a look at the cultural aspects of a lot of different peoples. Culture here in America is one thing, but in most places, culture overwhelmingly means one thing: religion.

    We shall explore the deeper beliefs and practices of a number of religions and look at them from their own lenses as well as our own. This site is meant to be somewhat interactive as well, full of resources, exchange, and conversation.

About the Course

This one semester course will provide a foundational base for today’s students living in a society of religious diversity.  Living in this diverse society, we often lack religious literacy, which limits our understanding of various religions and their roles in human society, nor allowing us to talk about them intelligently.

Being a Catholic Christian in the United States, sometimes we seem to know less about even our own faith tradition, much less others.  The focal point of this course will be anchored in and consistent with the Catholic tradition.  The invitation to redefine ‘neighbor’ has been issued by the Church to promote compassion and solidarity in the world, and so this course is a response to that invitation.  For the most part, we will be looking at the various faith traditions in a comparative-style format.
