Mission

Oasis’s mission is to foster knowledge between Christians and Muslims, in order to create room for dialogue, documenting the reciprocal cultural relevance of Christianity for Islam and vice versa, in view of the edification of good personal and community life.

Oasis’s adventure was born from the conviction that the meeting between Christians and Muslims, always possible by virtue of the same “elementary human experience” (John Paul II), is today made more urgent by the ongoing historical process – which we shall call “mestizaje of civilisations and cultures” – and by the fundamental issues raised by this.

To know more about this, see the intervention Cardinal Angelo Scola, Archbishop of Milan and President of Oasis, during his presentation of Oasis to the Turin Book Fair (Saturday, 12 May 2012, in Italian).
