Proceedings of the Congress : Islam at plural, thought, faith, society

Publication of the proceedings of the first congress of PLURIEL held from 6 to 9 September 2016 at the Catholic University of Lyon.

Directed by Ali Mostfa and Michel Younès.

The theme of the congress was “Islam in the Plural. Faith, Thought and Society”

The main objective of this congress was to cross views and methodologies for a better perception of the current reality. Three axes of work punctuated the congress: the geopolitical axis where it was a question of understanding the current dynamics and their economic and confessional deployment; the theological axis which should make the questions appear sub-underlying any interreligious encounter and the societal axis relating to the diversity inherent in any religious movement, particularly in its way of meeting the challenges of modernity.

Publication des actes du premier congrès de PLURIEL qui s’est tenu du 6 au 9 septembre 2016 à l’Université catholique de Lyon.

Sous la direction de Ali Mostfa et Michel Younès.

Le thème du congrès était “L’islam au pluriel. Foi, pensée et société”

L’objectif principal de ce congrès était de croiser les regards et les méthodologies pour une meilleure perception de la réalité actuelle. Trois axes de travail ont rythmé le congrès : l’axe géopolitique où il s’agissait de comprendre les dynamiques actuelles et leur déploiement économique et confessionnel ; l’axe théologique qui devrait faire apparaître les questions sous-jacentes à toute rencontre interreligieuse et l’axe sociétal relatif à la diversité inhérente à tout mouvement religieux, notamment dans sa manière de croiser les défis propres à la modernité.
