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?
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.
This lecture series, which ran over three sessions between September and December 2016, sought to make academic research in Islamic Studies accessible to the broader public. The speakers integrated literary and historical approaches in order to illustrate the intricate relationship between Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
Videos of the lectures are available to view below.
