Sandra Toenies Keating, Ph.D.

Relations between Muslims and Christians have always been complex and varied, offering both difficult challenges and great opportunities. Dr. Keating will explore some of the theological aspects of these tensions, and ways the two communities are seeking to encourage cooperation and peace today.

She earned her PhD from the Catholic University of America and has studied at the Pontifical Institute for the Study of Islam and Arabic in Rome. She was a member of the Vatican Commission for Religious Relations with Muslims from 2005 to 2012, is currently a member of the USCCB Mid-Atlantic dialogue, and participates regularly in Catholic-Muslim dialogues in the United States and abroad.
