The third volume to appear from the proceedings of the Catholic-Shi‘a Dialogue initiative
A Catholic-Shi‘a Dialogue: Ethics in Today's Society is the third volume to appear from the proceedings of the Catholic-Shi‘a Dialogue initiative which is supported by the following academic and religious institutions: The Centre for Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue, based at the Jesuit Theological Faculty in Heythrop College, University of London, the Benedictine Ampleforth Abbey and College, and the Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute Qum, Iran.
The Catholic-Shi‘a initiative is an international group of Catholic and Shi‘a scholars and religious leaders who seek to sustain and develop a dialogue and conversation between Christianity and Islam from their distinctive religious traditions. The initative seeks to engage with the highest level of intellectual and religious discourse on matters of contemporary significance and importance for the global society whilst maintaining the theological integrity of these two respective traditions. The Third Catholic Shi‘a meeting took place at Heythrop College and the Worth Benedictine Monastery in 2007.
The other volumes in this series are: Catholics and Shi‘a in Dialogue: Studies in Theology and Spirituality (2004) and A Catholic-Shi‘a Engagement: Faith and Reason in Theory and Practice (2006).
