CHRISTIANITY AND ITS NEIGHBOUR-RELIGIONS: A QUESTION OF TOLERANCE? IMPULSES FOR THE EDUCATION OF RELIGION FROM THE EXPERIENCE OF ECUMENICAL DIALOGUE

Wolfram Weisse

Abstract


A far reaching change in perspectives is opening up:  In a time of decreasing significance of Christianity in Germany (and in the whole Western world?) other religions are growing considerably in our countries.  Today religions are present in Europe which in the past had to be researched by travelling and by the analysis of their teachings.  The ‘Foreign Religions’ or ‘World Religions’ of the past are now ‘neighbour-religions’.
