This article investigates the meaning of 'intercultural hermeneutics'. Though not called by this term, intercultural hermeneutics has already existed from the moment Christians came into contact with people of other beliefs and cultures. After a delineation of the meaning of intercultural hermeneutics vis-à-vis Western classical hermeneutics, three examples are given of situations and persons who have attempted to practice what is meant by intercultural hermeneutics. The first example is the dialogue between Buddhists and Christians in Hawaii in the 1980s, the second the ideas of Raimon Panikkar, while the third is the theology of Aloysius Pieris.
