The Georgetown Companion to Interreligious Studies

Edited by Lucinda Mosher
A comprehensive collection provides guidance and deep insight from a variety of experts in this emerging field

The rapidly developing field of interreligious studies fosters scholarship engaging two or more religious traditions at a time. Inherently multidisciplinary, the field brings the academic consideration of religions into conversation with the humanities and social sciences, employing relational, intersectional, experiential, and dialogical methodologies as it examines the interrelationship of individuals and groups with differing alignments toward religion.

Edited by Lucinda Mosher, The Georgetown Companion to Interreligious Studies features an international roster of practitioners of or experts on Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhism, Ruism, Humanism, and African, North American, and South American Indigenous lifeways. Each author offers a unique perspective on the nature of this emerging discipline.

This companion provides fifty thought-provoking chapters on the history, priorities, challenges, distinguishing pedagogies, and practical applications of interreligious studies. Anyone who seeks a deeper appreciation of this relatively new academic field will find it useful as a textbook or research resource.

About the Author

She is the senior editor of the Journal of Interreligious Studies.

She holds a doctorate of theology degree from the General Theological Seminary.


"The Georgetown Companion to Interreligious Studies offers a diversity of topics and perspectives by some of the most important thinkers within the young and growing field. Interreligious studies demands we should not be satisfied with any one perspective on these challenging and complicated questions. This volume will tell you how to think, rather than what to think—the very essence of what the intersection of academia and faith ought to be." — Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance

"The Georgetown Companion to Interreligious Studies is the most comprehensive, representative, and interdisciplinary missive from the field to date." — Michelle Voss Roberts, coeditor of The Routledge Handbook of Hindu—Christian Relations
