This second volume of Raimon Panikkar’s Opera Omnia o¬ffers Panikkar’s reflections on religion in our era as well as in many other historical epochs. Because no particular religion can claim to exhaust the universal range of human experience, Panikkar argues that in a globalized world, a kind of religious pluralism is a necessary reality, and dialogue between diff¬erent religions, cultures, and worldviews is an imperative of our time.
The first section of this volume expands on the concept of religion from diff¬erent viewpoints and develops some of the most universal aspects of religiosity. The second deals with comparative religion and with the religious philosophy of encounter, while the third section includes more specific topics, among which are the body and medicine, because religion reconnects not just humanity to God, but also the spirit to the body.
