Welcome to the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

The Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme is dedicated to learning about, learning from, and learning between religions as they interact within a secular and religious world. Focusing principally but not exclusively on Christianity, Islam and Judaism, CIP promotes better understanding of these traditions through research, dialogue and education.

Searching for understanding

What does it mean to be religious in the 21st century? How should people from different religious traditions engage with one another, and with society? How should the importance of those traditions, and their power for good and ill, be acknowledged intelligently within secular institutions? What can we learn from history about how religions have interacted and shaped one another, and together shaped the public sphere? What are the resources within different religions for promoting peace and contributing to human flourishing? In an increasingly divided world, it is vital to create spaces in which people can study and explore these questions, and share research with non-academic audiences.
