This chapter examines some of the contemporary uses to which the category has been put in the years after September 11, 2001. No longer perceived in a supersessionist manner (as in chapter two) or as a moral antidote to a contemporary malaise (as in chapter three), we now clearly see “Abrahamic religions” being used to delineate a set of qualities that can subsequently be used in the quest for interfaith understanding. Like its predecessors, however, the term is still every bit as ahistorical and essential.

Keywords:   interfaith dialogue, Karl-Josef Kuschel, 9/11, United States Insitute of Peace, Samuel Huntington, clash of civilizations
