Judaism, Christianity and Islam: A Cultural Historical Comparison
Guided Tour for Adults
This tour looks into the historical relationships between religions and sensitizes students to the roles of religious minorities in a majority-Christian Europe.
"The Lord our God is one!" The three major monotheistic religions of the world, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, have many things in common: a written culture, scholarship, commerce, and mathematical systems. These similarities testify to many centuries of associations and mutual influences. Against the backdrop of those historical developments, this tour sets out to show current connections: How are synagogues and mosques perceived in public space? What status is granted to Judaism and Islam in Christian-dominated societies? Finally, how do religious minorities view themselves in present-day Germany?
