The Trinity in Interreligious Dialogues

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


This article examines the relevance of the doctrine of the Trinity for interreligious dialogues. It shows how recent reflection on the religions has been impoverished when the Trinity is not the guiding light and describes some helpful Trinitarian approaches to the religions. It raises concerns about the approaches of Karl Rahner, Jacques Dupuis, and Raimundo Panikkar to the Trinity and non-Christian religions and argues for explicitly Trinitarian and Christological approaches to these religions in terms of praeparatio evangelica, semina Verbi, and vestigia Trinitatis.
