Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies
Published/Hosted by Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies.
First established in Amman, Jordan, in July 1994, as a centre for the study of Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions in the Arab world, the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies has since broadened its field of academic interest with a view to becoming a clearing house for knowledge and ideas relating to culture contact in the broadest possible sense. From our original focus on questions of religion and religious diversity, we have widened the scope of our activities to make them interdisciplinary, covering all fields of the humanities and social sciences that bear on cultural or civilizational interaction; and from our original concentration on regional issues, which remain one of our main concerns, we have turned more and more to the global, in a world where regionality can no longer afford isolation. With a view to our change in approach, we decided to publish a journal, the Bulletin of the Royal Institute for Inter-Faith Studies (BRIIFS), as an experiment of a new kind, one attuned to the increasingly cross-cultural mores of the contemporary world and providing a venue for the parochial to blend with the cosmopolitan and for the findings of different disciplines to merge and, by so doing, reinforce one another.
