Orthodoxy and Inter-religious Dialogue

Martzelos, Georgios (2007)


The great problems, persecutions and dangers that missionaries and the faithful have been facing for centuries from the fanatical followers of traditional religions, mainly in Asia and Africa, have been compounded over recent decades by the rise of religious, particularly Islamic, fanaticism. This constitutes a serious threat to world peace and has led the WCC, the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Churches to realize the necessity for inter-religious dialogue. This promises to be the most appropriate means of dealing with the various social problems, which stem from the encounter or co-existence of heterogeneous religious groupings within the framework of both the modern state and the world community.
