Islam @ 250
This conference honours the memory of the well-known scholar Dr. G.H.A. Juynboll and focuses on the early classical period of Islam —the period with which most of Gautier Juynboll’s research was concerned. The conference addresses recent developments in a number of fields of Islamic learning in the first three centuries of Islam, namely Qur’ānic studies, including Tafsīr; Ḥadīth; law; historiography; political thought; theology and heresiography; asceticism and mysticism; adab, and grammatical thought. Around 20 papers will be presented during the conference. A general discussion on the state of Islam in its various dimensions, anno 250, will close the conference.
