Taking advantage of the theological categories of Jürgen Moltmann, the research will have as main objective to articulate these categories with the interreligious dialogue. Since the author does not yet have a systematic work on the subject, the research will have the opportunity to contribute to the theology of religions, with a view to designing an ecumenical theology of religions in Moltmann. In addition, the research will have as a challenge to mediate dialogues that favor current themes such as justice, peace, ecology and human rights, common themes in Moltmannian reflection as well as in Latin America, thus consisting of bridges to an interfaith dialogue. Thus, the research tries to favor the dialogue in the hope of enabling a reflection and a praxis that is engaged with the contemporary themes that concern the life. (AU)
