Interfaith Etiquette

Show Summary Details


What are appropriate ways to interact with those of other faiths? Proper religious etiquette is necessary in both inter-personal relations and institutional structures. Inter-personal religious etiquette requires comprehension of differences and then making appropriate adjustments in behavior. Institutional religious etiquette refers to the ways that colleges and universities make time and space available for all varieties of religion. This chapter describes six institutional models for religious programming on campus: free market, house of representatives, senate, state church, one-party rule, and homogeneous. Initiatives like community-based study centers seek to encourage good interfaith relations on campus and beyond.
