In Antiquity and the Middle Ages, the Platonic ontology of participation reveals a specific potential for interreligious dialogue based on philosophical principles. Within the frame of his theorem of participation, Proclus' theory of henads finds a sound interpretation. The same theorem is used by Nicholas of Cusa in his De pace fidei in order to reconcile, for instance, the divergent perspectives on the Trinity in Islamic and Christian Thought.
