New Building Bridges Seminar Video Released

Following its virtual film premiere earlier this month, a new video from the Building Bridges Seminar has been released on YouTube. Produced by Dr Shirin Shafaie of Visual Academics Ltd, in collaboration with Samuel Wagner of Georgetown University, the film shares the story of the Building Bridges Seminar, an interfaith initiative by the Berkley Centre for Religion, Peace and World Affairs at Georgetown University, USA. Westcott House Director of Studies, Beth Phillips, and Senior Research Fellow, Philip Sheldrake, have both participated in the Building Bridges Seminar for multiple years.

Forming a series of committed and consistent long-term theological dialogues, the Building Bridges Seminar has brought together internationally recognised Christian and Muslim scholars for intensive study since 2002.  The scholars meet annually over three or four days, alternating between Christian and Muslim host locations.

The film is available to watch here: external link. More information about Building Bridges, including the published proceedings of the seminars, is available here:
