Shaping religious pluralism is a pivotal task in contemporary societies. The challenges involved can be seen particularly clearly in societies in transition. As an example of this, Simone Sinn studies religious pluralism in Indonesia, a country in which after Suharto's resignation in 1998 religio-political issues were discussed exhaustively in public.
Shaping religious pluralism is a pivotal task in contemporary societies. The challenges involved can be seen particularly clearly in societies in transition. As an example of this, Simone Sinn studies religious pluralism in Indonesia, a country in which after Suharto's resignation in 1998 religio-political issues were discussed exhaustively in public.
The study's approach from the perspective of discourse analysis shows the interpretive patterns and narratives in Islam and Christianity which have a formative influence on the understanding of religious pluralism in Indonesia. The systematic-theological reflection deals with core questions of political ethics and of the theology of religions. It identifies the experience of vulnerability as a central challenge in religious pluralism and provides a theological discussion of the appropriate understanding of human beings' agency.
