In today’s interconnected global society, religions continually develop, transform, and define themselves in relation to one another, leading to both conflict and constructive interactions. As a result, interreligious entanglements have become a growing area of focus in theology and religious studies. This conference will examine a key aspect that adds complexity to interfaith relations: the role of the past as a resource for self-understanding and practice. With a focus on Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, this conference will explore the interplay between the formation and transformation of traditions and the growth of interreligious connectivity and awareness, both in the past and in the present. This event also serves as the launch of the Berlin Interdisciplinary Centre on “Traditions in Transformation.”
