Research

Manuel Hurtado's research and teaching bring together Systematic Theology and Theology of Religions with a special interest in Intercultural and Interreligious Dialogue with South Amerindian Cultures and Religions in the horizon and inspiration of his theological research.

In 2015, he spent a semester at HDS/CSWR for studying methods of Comparative Theology because reviewing those which are being used currently may help reflect on what might be the best road map for comparative or interreligious and intercultural theology, as it is being referred to in some parts of Europe and Latin America.  

Hurtado has also a growing interest to relate Christian spirituality to other spiritualities, as a way to accomplish a Practical Dialogue of religious experience, particularly within indigenous spiritualities. He is developing an "Amerindian Comparative Theology", studying Indigenous Oral Traditions.
