Henry Karlson is a Byzantine Catholic who has long had interest in interfaith dialogue and the comparative theology which develops from it. He first became interested in what Christians can learn from other traditions through his engagement with myth via C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. But then in his academic pursuits, he became interested in the philosophical and theological explorations which are also able to be had through study of many faith traditions. While he finds many faith traditions of interest, including Judaism and Islam, his main focus has been on Buddhist-Christian dialogue with a particular interest in Yogācāra Buddhism. Henry Karlson currently works as an independent scholar writing articles on Patheos and working on several books which he hopes to have published.
