When Religions Contribute to Education for a more Fraternal Humanity

What resources are religions endowed with to educate for a more fraternal humanity? To respond to this question, a study day was organised on February 24th 2020 at the Pontifical Gregorian University and in collaboration with the PISAI amongst representatives of various religions, including a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, a Hindu, a Buddhist and an exponent of the traditional African religions. This volume of the Series Interreligious and Intercultural Investigations brings together the conferences of the experts who have reflected on the role of religions in education and formation in an increasingly globalized and complex world where diversity presents itself as a real challenge for living together.

Quelles ressources possèdent les religions pour éduquer à la fraternité universelle ?
