Pope Francis and Rouhani: for a Christian renewal in the Middle East and Iran’s Islam
Today's meeting raises hope for regional stability and a stop to the slaughter of Christians, condemned to oblivion at the hands of al Qaeda and Isis, who are also Iran’s enemies. The dialogue between cultures, religions and peoples that began under Khatami, frozen under Ahmadinejad, can now start again. Moderate Islam is also useful to Iranian youth, nauseated by the ayatollahs and the Revolutionary Guards. The Catechism and Catholic theologians are available in Persian translations.
Iran's Shia Islam open to dialogue with modernity and other religions
In the holy city of Qom, the shrine dedicated to the sister of the eighth imam is within distance of least 50 theological schools, teeming with tens of thousands of students, seminarians and lay people, and not all Iranian. All schools have well-equipped libraries where works in science, history, philosophy, psychology, and other religions are studied and translated. One example is the University of Religions and Denominations. Here is the second part of the report on Iran.
