Rose in Landmark Joint Publication with Kalam Research & Media, and Cambridge Interfaith Programme

Rose Castle Foundation (RCF) joins partners Kalam Research & Media (KRM) and the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme (CIP) in celebrating CIP's 20th anniversary with a landmark publication.

The volume, titled Ecologies of Wisdom: Christian and Muslim Horizons, brings together Professor David Ford’s 2009 Muscat Manifesto, with the 2010 response, Growing Ecologies of Peace, Compassion and Blessing, by Dr Aref Ali Nayed.

Professor Ford is Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, and Co-Chair of RCF. Dr Nayed is the Founder and Chairman of KRM and a Senior Advisor to CIP.

The pioneering relationship between the two shaped much of the early formation of CIP, which in turn shaped much of the early formation of RCF - most notably through championing Scriptural Reasoning.

As two leading, outward-looking thinkers drawing from the deepest wells of their own different scriptures and traditions, there is perhaps no better place than Ecologies of Wisdom in which the theological roots of 'deep-to-deep' dialogue and engagement is so profoundly and beautifully modelled.

The impetus for this landmark commemorative volume came in recognition of the CIP anniversary celebration on 5th-6th September 2022, hosted by Professor Esra Özyürek (the Sultan Qaboos Professor of Abrahamic Faiths and Shared Values and CIP’s Academic Director), who contributed the publication's foreword.
