Secularization project for French Muslim theological students

The Catholic Institute of Paris, in conjunction with the Grand Mosque of Paris, will offer a government-sponsored two-semester course beginning in January for thirty student imams to complete their religious training. The course, entitled Religions, Secularism, Interculturality will offer 400 hours of accredited instruction in four subject areas – general culture, legislative matters, openness and the human sciences, and intercultural exchange.
