Cambridge Interfaith Programme

Paving stones with crack where a plant grows

This symposium brings students and scholars from several faculties including Divinity, Music, Anthropology, and Modern and Medieval Languages in conversation around how our intersecting disciplines might approach addressing ruptures and advancing reconciliations.

The panels will explore such questions as:
  • how do mystics of the past, and theologians of today, destabilise neat religious categories?
  • How does art offer us a window into the ruptures of multiple religious belongings?
  • And how do communities reconcile themselves to new forms of living and worshipping?
