The Master was presented with Dynamics of Difference: Christianity and Alterity. A Festschrift for Werner G Jeanrond during a birthday dinner organised by St Benet’s Hall on 5 March 2015. The Festschrift, co-edited by Ulrich Schmiedel and James M Matarazzo Jr, both DPhil students in Theology and members of the Hall, investigates the challenge of alterity for Christianity, exploring and elaborating on this core concern in Jeanrond’s hermeneutical theology. Blurring disciplinary boundaries, more than thirty of Professor Jeanrond’s colleagues and companions from ten countries track the dynamics of difference driven by the encounter with the self as other, the other as other, and God as the radical other.
