Nostra Aetate

Celebrating 50 years of Vatican II’s Declaration on the Church’s Relation with Non-Christian Religions 

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Vatican II declaration Nostra Aetate (In Our Time), and in order to better understand the legacy of this interreligious achievement of the Council, we present a series of articles from accomplished international figures in the field of interfaith dialogue. As Pope Francis reminds us, “either we stand together with the culture of dialogue and encounter (in today’s world), or we all lose.” We hope that this issue will help to support and further the incredible interfaith outreach that is taking place within our communities today. May it also serve as an opportunity to examine the past, present, and future of interreligious encounter in a world with a growing need for peaceful coexistence.
