The Qur’an, Religious Pluralism, and Feminist Theology: What does the Qur’an say about Judaism, Christianity, and other religions? Is Islam the only ‘valid’ religion? Are all religions essentially the same? What perspectives on religious pluralism have been offered by theologians and scholars? Are other perspectives possible?
This course will critically engage these questions, beginning with an examination of the Qur’anic text. Upon this foundation, we will look at a variety of traditional and contemporary theological approaches to religious diversity, highlighting conclusions as well as methodologies. The final part of the course will be a constructive exploration of Christian feminist theology and the work of various Muslima scholars in an effort to identify new insights into and methods for articulating an Islamic theology of religious pluralism.
