This study presents the official teachings of the Catholic Church on interreligious dialogue as enshrined in the documents `Ecclesiam suam' (1964) of Pope Paul VI, `Nostra aetate' and other documents of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), `Dialogue and Mission' (1984), and `Dialogue and Proclamation' (1991), with some reflections on the philosophical and theological foundations of interreligious dialogue, and the present state of dialogue in the Catholic Church.
