This workshop will focus on the diversity of relationships that have existed among these four religious groups over time and in several global regions, culminating in discussion of their interactions within the Twin Cities. The workshop will begin with a brief overview of each tradition, followed by close examination of a few periods of both cooperation and conflict in the Middle East, Europe and Northern India. Using this background, participants will turn their attention to the contemporary relationships being developed in the U.S., using the Twin Cities as a case study. The workshop will include lectures by and discussions with several academic experts and religious professionals as well as tours of several local religious buildings.
