Crossroads in Muslim-Christian Dialogue – September 2019
CROSSROADS IN JEWISH-CHRISTIAN-MUSLIM DIALOGUE: A THREE-PART MINI-COURSE SERIES
The ICJS mini-courses for our 2019-2020 program year include a three-part series focused on the particularities and histories of each of the sides of the Abrahamic dialogue triangle — Muslim-Christian, Jewish-Christian, and Jewish-Muslim. In each course we will study and discuss case studies and encounters between different Jewish, Christian, and Muslim thinkers and actors in history and the present and the ways those meetings and encounters impacted (or didn’t) their religious communities and traditions. We hope to see how the Muslim, Jewish, and Christian traditions have intersected, interacted, and interdepended for centuries.
Each course will be offered in separate morning (10am to noon) and evening (7pm to 9pm) sessions and will cost $30 for three sessions.
PART ONE: CROSSROADS IN MUSLIM-CHRISTIAN DIALOGUE
In this first course in our three-part series, we will consider different moments in Muslim-Christian encounter from the medieval to the present. How have Christians and Muslims fought, conversed, and lived among and alongside each other in the past? What do Muslims and Christians today stand to learn from examining the rich and parallel histories of Christianity and Islam?
