Religions and dialogues

Founded in 1967 in the wake of the Vatican Council II at the request of the missionary congregations and of Rome, by Fathers Jean Daniélou and Henri Bouillard, the Paris Institute of Science and Theology of Religions combines fundamental theological reflection with pastoral practices and societal issues. As a Christian research and training institution, the ISTR has several axes: research and teaching of a Christian theology of mission, religions and dialogue; knowledge of religions and cultures in their diversity and contemporary creativity; understanding the religious phenomenon, the labyrinth of identities, atheisms and indifferentism; taking into account the complexity of questions of interculturality, societal interactions, the rise of fundamentalism; reflection on the responsibility of the Christian Churches towards society. The proceedings of the colloquium held in June 2017 on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the Institute made it possible to highlight how deepening the dialogical dimension of the mission is at the heart of the Institute’s project. It emerges from this the teaching of a dialogue that involves listening to the other, the need to esteem him, as he is, without seeking to bring him back to oneself. The ISTR has thus contributed to promoting for fifty years a “theology of welcome” where reflection on dialogue with other religions irrigates and enlightens society on the reality and the need for dialogue. Open to others, the ISTR Paris attests to how Christianity is deployed as a wisdom and a resource for all social actors, beyond their personal beliefs.

Fondé en 1967 dans l’élan du Concile Vatican II à la demande des congrégations missionnaires et de Rome, par les Pères Jean Daniélou et Henri Bouillard, l’Institut de science et théologie des religions de Paris allie la réflexion théologique fondamentale avec les pratiques pastorales et les questions sociétales. Comme institution chrétienne de recherche et de formation, l’ISTR articule plusieurs axes : la recherche et l’enseignement d’une théologie chrétienne de la mission, des religions et du dialogue ; la connaissance des religions et des cultures dans leur diversité et leur créativité contemporaine ; la compréhension du phénomène religieux, du labyrinthe des identités, des athéismes et de l’indifférentisme ; la prise en compte de la complexité des questions d’interculturalité, des interactions sociétales, de l’essor des intégrismes ; la réflexion sur la responsabilité des Églises chrétiennes à l’égard de la société. Les Actes du colloque tenu en juin 2017 à l’occasion du cinquantième anniversaire de la fondation de l’Institut ont permis de mettre en évidence comment l’approfondissement de la dimension dialogale de la mission est au coeur du projet de l’Institut. Il en ressort l’enseignement d’un dialogue qui passe par l’écoute de l’autre, la nécessité de l’estimer, tel qu’il est, sans chercher à le ramener à soi. L’ISTR contribue ainsi à promouvoir depuis cinquante ans une « théologie de l’accueil » où la réflexion sur le dialogue avec les autres religions irrigue et éclaire la société sur la réalité et la nécessité du dialogue. Ouvert sur les autres, l’ISTR de Paris atteste comment le christianisme se déploie comme sagesse et ressource pour l’ensemble des acteurs sociaux, au-delà de leurs croyances personnelles.
