The Past, Present, and Future of Theologies of Interreligious Dialogue

Jeannine Hill Fletcher

Oxford University Press

The 1893 World’s Parliament of Religions, which was heralded as a groundbreaking event in the development of modern interreligious understanding, also signaled the dawn of social movements for gender justice, African-American civil rights and emergent post-colonialism. This chapter investigates the interfaith encounter which the Parliament made possible as a rich case study providing opportunities for reflection on those at the margins of the White Christian project of theology of religious pluralism, and the critical questions which arise at the intersection of gender, race, and religious difference. Notwithstanding its achievements, the Parliament must be interrogated for the ways that it participated in the project of White supremacy and Christian hegemony, as well as for the ways in which it resisted such hegemonic supremacy.

Keywords:   1893 World’s Parliament of Religions, gender, race, White supremacy, constructive theology of religions, retroductive warrant, Mark Lewis Taylor
