Religion, Conflict and Peacemaking
course, conceived by Yehezkel Landau who teaches at Hartford Theological
Seminary, explores the paradox of religion as a source of division and
conflict, on the one hand, and of peaceful aspirations and compassionate,
sacrificial service on the other. Theoretical approaches to this paradox,
drawn from the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions, will be
supplemented by practical case studies, with particular attention given to
the Israeli-Palestinian-Arab dispute over the “Holy Land.” How can our faith
commitments be effectively applied to promote inter-communal reconciliation?
How can our own lives exemplify a peacemaking vocation in the face of
religious extremists within our own faith community and those of our
neighbors? These and related questions will be addressed, with a central
goal being to integrate the lessons learned from the readings with our
everyday challenges as peace-seekers.
