Religious Pluralism & Religious Plurality: towards an ethics of peace

Research cum Dialogue Project (2016-17)

In January 2016, the Chair of Muslim Cultural & Religious History (CMCRH), University of Erfurt initiated a new research-cum-dialogue project titled ‘Religious Pluralism & Religious Plurality: towards an ethics of peace’. This academic endeavor invites male and female students from religious seminaries from Pakistan to participate in workshops at the University of Erfurt.

Over the course of two years, the CMCRCH will host three major workshops on the topic of

(i) Questions of Historiography
(ii) Social Sciences & Religion
(iii) Human Rights and the Contribution of Religions

These workshops are carefully designed in order to deal with the issue of religious (in)tolerance from the perspective of social, cultural and religious studies, and the participants are encouraged to advance their own solutions from within their traditions while also employing the scientific tools and epistemological insights provided during the workshops.

One of the unique aspects of these workshops at the University of Erfurt is its sustainability effect as every workshop conducted in Erfurt University will be followed up with a similar workshop that madrasa students will be encouraged to conduct in their own seminaries in Pakistan. This exercise in cultural translation is of immense importance as it will bear the potential to put into practice the knowledge acquired in Germany.
