Description

By analysing the non-violent theology of the Syrian thinker Jawdat Said, the chapter aims to explore the relationship between religious diversity and peacebuilding in the Islamic context. Indeed, Said’s reflections were partially affected by the multiple religious identities he met in his life. Above all, the importance of diversity is a pillar of his non-violent thought.
