The Second Vatican Council (1962-65), popularly known as Vatican II, was arguably one of the most transformative religious events of the twentieth century.” So writes UW historian, Charles L. Cohen, in a new edited volume that explores the council’s still unfolding global legacy and implications. The book offers a fresh examination of Vatican II’s Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions from a variety of religious traditions and perspectives. In a world of profound religious and cultural difference it engages in the interreligious challenge to create not just “a truce among [religions], but an alliance to promote human well-being and spiritual growth.”

On February 13, Professor Charles Cohen, along with his co-editors Professor Paul F. Knitter and the director of the CRGC, Professor Ulrich Rosenhagen, as well as CRGC scholar Kyra Fox, to join us for a discussion about the book, and the landscape of contemporary interfaith dialogue in light of a remarkable moment in recent religious history.
