Towards Building a Muslim Theology of Religions

Salvation in the Islamic Tradition in conversation with the Christian discussion of exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism

This seminar traces the historical development of the Muslim discussion on ‘salvation’. The discussion is divided into three main phases: the formative period of Islam, the mediaeval period, culminating in the modern period. The proposed thesis seeks to solidify the Muslim Theology of Religions, benefiting from a well-established Christian one. While it aims to do this, it questions the applicability of the Threefold Typology: exclusivism, inclusivism and pluralism to the Muslim traditions.
