What does interfaith dialogue mean in Rome, as
opposed to anywhere else? This ethnography of Roman
interreligious dialogue narrates how interfaith engagement
and social transformation are talked about and practiced
today in the Eternal City. The constellation of Roman
interfaith organizations is analyzed in a Durkheimian
framework as a moral community with distinct rituals and
sacred objects, referred to as the „interfaith society“.
Through in-depth participant-observation and interviews with
interfaith dialoguers on the institutional, nonprofit, and
grassroots levels, this research explores the community
dynamics and social impact of pursuing religious pluralism
in the shadow of the Vatican.
