At interreligious meetings in the Netherlands, very little
attention is paid to interaction. How can people express
their experiences, religious images and practices so that
others are able to understand them? Religious differences
complicate the potential for understanding one another; if
there is no common ground, people should communicate in such
a way that common ground is created. This study explains the
contribution of a curriculum to knowledge of the interaction
styles and hermeneutic distinctions that are used to express
and interpret views on religious phenomena. We consider
knowledge of communication and interpretation conditional
for mutual understanding; we refer to this as
hermeneutic-communicative learning. The focus of this book
is not solely religious phenomena, but the way in which
participants express and interpret these phenomena.

Mijke Jetten was a junior researcher at the
department of Empirical and Practical Religious Studies at
