About-

Though women have been objects more often than subjects of interreligious dialogue, they have nevertheless contributed in significant ways to the dialogue, just as the dialogue has also contributed to their own self-understanding.

This volume, the fifth in the Interreligious Dialogue Series, brings together historical, critical, and constructive approaches to the role of women in the dialogue between religions. These approaches deal with concrete examples of women's involvement in dialogue, critical reflections on the representation of women in dialogue, and the important question of what women might bring to the dialogue. Together, they open up new avenues for reflection on the nature and purpose of interreligious dialogue.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This collection of essays is an essential text for anyone who wants to follow cutting-edge interreligious work. For years, interreligious scholars have been calling for women's voices to join interreligious dialogue, theology of religions, and comparative theology. Many of the leading voices in these pioneering fields are brought together in Cornille's latest volume, Women and Interreligious Dialogue. No interreligious classroom is complete without taking into account the perspectives represented in this book."
--Aimee Upjohn Light, Duquesne University

"This book is a must-read for every student interested in religion, theology, culture, gender, and reconciliation. Considering women's prevailing invisibility in all levels of interreligious dialogue, this volume is an invaluable contribution to this area of human engagement. Using a feminist lens, the authors critically engage with their own traditions and those of others. The complex and genuine picture of possible models for dialogue across boundaries of religion, culture, age, and gender that emerges opens up new understanding and inspiration for all involved in the dialogue."
--Nelly van Doorn-Harder, Wake Forest University
