Arij Roest Crollius

Fordham University Press

After studies in his native Netherlands, the Lebanon and Egypt, the Jesuit, Roest Crollius, moved to Rome where he was based for forty years, mainly at the Gregorian University. From here he became a world traveller to articulate and promote inter-faith and intercultural studies and advise his manifold superiors. Three elements of Christian-Muslim relations are discussed: institutionalised dialogue, research and teaching, and the study of Sufism, with particular attention to Ibn al-Farid, Ahmed Ghazali and Dara Shikoh. During decades spent in pursuit of this work, two further important initiatives are covered: the development of Jewish studies in Rome and the growth of Christian communities in the local culture of the people, for which the term inculturation was coined and defended.
