The Community of Religions

Very Rev. Thomas A. Baima

Gathered on the centenary and in the same city of Chicago where the first Parliament took place, the 1993 Parliament of the World’s Religions was the largest interfaith gathering ever held. Representatives from minority, ethnic, and tribal religions took the podium as equals alongside representatives from the world’s largest religious traditions. The Community of Religions is an essential record of this historic event, containing major addresses and reflections as well as numerous short evocations of the spirit of the Parliament.

Father Baima’s contribution is a chapter on the Declaration Toward a Global Ethic: Its Making and Its Future.
