Gathering people of goodwill from diverse backgrounds is central to the mission of A Faith That Does Justice.

Learning Interreligiously as a Key to a Better World

Event Type: Workshop

Join A Faith That Does Justice and Father Francis X. Clooney for an inter-faith discussion about how embracing diverse faith traditions can lead to a more caring, generous, and open-minded world.

Francis X. Clooney, S.J., joined the Harvard Divinity School faculty in 2005, where he is the Parkman Professor of Divinity and Professor of Comparative Theology. After earning his doctorate in South Asian languages and civilizations (University of Chicago, 1984), he taught at Boston College for 21 years before coming to Harvard.

His primary areas of Indological scholarship are theological commentarial writings in the Sanskrit and Tamil traditions of Hindu India. He is also a leading figure globally in the developing field of comparative theology, a discipline distinguished by attentiveness to the dynamics of theological learning deepened through the study of traditions other than one’s own. He has also written on the Jesuit missionary tradition, particularly in India, on the early Jesuit pan-Asian discourse on reincarnation, and on the dynamics of dialogue and interreligious learning in the contemporary world.
