The course is designed to expose students to the rich religious diversity of the city and to the categories of hospitality, encounter, and dialogue that are becoming part and parcel of theology today. The course is divided into 3 parts. The first part introduces students to various theologies of religion and dialogue that have emerged since the Second Vatican Council. The second part of the course includes visits to other religious groups on the UofT campus and neighboring areas. The on-site visits will introduce students to non-Christian prayer and liturgy, sacred space, social action and educational programs of other faiths that are flourishing in the city of Toronto. A last part of the course invites student to reflect on their interfaith experiences toward articulating a personal spirituality and theology of encounter and dialogue.
