This article examines the viability of religious experience to be used as a category for interreligious dialogue. The examination is carried out by considering the theological, philosophical, and anthropological insights of John Henry Newman and Bernard Lonergan. Comparisons and contrasts are drawn between the two authors as a means of shedding some light on this notoriously ambiguous and perplexing term. Ultimately, religious experience is held out as a viable category for dialogue in the contemporary context.
