1 Trinity College Dublin Trinity College Dublin – At Belfast Master in Conflict Resolution

2 Trinity College Dublin

3 Translating God(s) As the societies of the European regions are faced with the tasks of reconciling pluralism, diverse and divided cultural memories, and social cohesion, religious traditions and cultures of faith are due renewed attention. Religious traditions in the Europe have long lasting issues and experiences of both, interreligious conflicts and interreligious dialogue, and cultures of faith have to face multiple intercultural and interreligious challenges in a fast changing religious landscape: Cultures of Faith in Europe Changing Religious Landscape

4 Trinity College Dublin Translating God(s) Due to complex histories, socio-cultural and political rivalries, inter-religious conflicts, etc., religious traditions often suffer from divided cultural religious memories of their peoples. Religious traditions, while drawing on different cultures of faith, also often compete with one another on differing theoretical, theological, philosophical, symbolic and imagery grounds. Due to global migration, Europe experiences an increase in the development of migrant-led religious communities from different religious strands, leading to formations of more hybrid and intercultural communities and multi-religious cultures, enhancing the society’s cultural and inter-religious stress and making interreligious coexistence a necessity. In all this, it is of importance to recognize the changing ways in which the religions, including their foundational texts and cultural-religious resources, have been interpreted and lived in their histories of reception and encounter with other cultures, suggesting that these will give important clues to their current potential for renewing the „will to live together“ and to tackle the intercultural and interreligious challenges.
