Receiving a delegation from the Theology College of the Antonine University

Fadlullah: We have to rationalize theology in order to understand it

His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, received a delegation from the College of theological sciences and pastoral studies of the Antonine University that included fathers Joseph Bou Raad and Kizhayah Karam.

The delegation invited His Eminence to participate in the conference to be held in the University on 26-27, June 2009 under the title: "Violence in the Holy Texts".

During the meeting the Sayyed emphasized the need of the proximity between Islam and Christianity in the domains of values and the general lines of theology. He pointed out that we have to rationalize theology, in order to understand it. Rationalizing, in this case, does not mean abstraction, but striving to understand an issue through its subjective elements of value.
