The Qurʾān between Judaism and Christianity (University of Nottingham - October/December 2016)

The Qurʾān between Judaism and Christianity (University of Nottingham - October/December 2016)

The University of Nottingham Department of Theology and Religious Studies

What can the Qurʾān, the Holy Scripture of Islam, teach us about Judaism and Christianity ? How does knowledge about Judaism and Christianity help us to understand the Qurʾān better ? This lecture series seeks to make academic research in Islamic Studies accessible to the broader public.
The speakers integrate literary and historical approaches in order to illustrate the intricate relationship between Jews, Christians, and Muslims. A better understanding of the past may in turn help us to reconsider the present in a more nuanced way, and to formulate answers to the challenges faced by the Muslim communities in the Western World and beyond. The talks will be followed by a response and a discussion. Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
