Appel à communications : “Charity in Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Traditions”, Saint Louis University (États-Unis), 26-27/03/2015  — LIMITE : 10/12/2014

The conference is focusing on the following themes:
•To what extent is there a common paradigm in the ways Jews, Christians, and Muslims have addressed the needs of the more vulnerable members of their respective societies?
• How do the three religions differ in their understanding of poverty and wealth, and in their justifications for giving charity? How does religious duty to be charitable translate into private and public virtue?
•How do charitable institutions affect cross-cultural interactions–between different cultures and religions, as well as between dominant and minority groups?

Selected papers will be considered for publication in a volume of proceedings. Proposals should include: a one-page abstract of the paper, with a title and name of the author; the author’s brief curriculum vitae; postal address; email address; and phone number.
