At the basis of Islamic and Catholic ecology: legal and doctrinal differences and similarities

Abstract

 

This study aims at analyzing the bases of Islamic and Catholic environmental doctrines, so as to find out differences and possible similarities between the two, and understand to what extent the two eco-theologies could be compatible. The analysis carried out has proven that there are some similarities which could be fruitfully used develop a constructive interreligious dialogue and provide a strong combined contribution by the two majority religions of the world to “to convince Governments to do more, in the perspective of the necessary regulation of [environmental] sustainability” (De Oto, 2019: 77-78).
