Comparative theology is a branch of Christian theology which studies the religious diversity and its comparison, as well as theological reflection upon it.[1] Comparative Theology requires the introduction and learning of other religious traditions directly through shared experience.[1] Comparative Theology arose as impact of the tripolar typology in the Theology of Religions discourse, that caught up in arguments about the benefits of the models of theology of religions.[2] Comparative Theology offers to look at other religions from its point of view and tradition.[2] Comparative Theology is introduced by Francis X. Clooney and James L. Fredericks.[2]
