Description

Christian-Muslim Relations Project Public Lecture

Speaker: Professor Alastair Hamilton

Title: Forbidden Fruit: Translating the Qur’an in early modern Europe

The Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded Christian-Muslim Relations project team at the University of Birmingham warmly invite you to its first public lecture, to be delivered by Professor Alastair Hamilton (School of Advanced Study, University of London).

Alastair's main interests lie in two fields: the history of Arabic studies and, more generally, of orientalism in Europe in the early modern period, with a special emphasis on the Arabic-speaking Christians; and religious non-conformism in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe (especially in Spain, Italy and the Low Countries).

The lecture will be followed by a reception and a launch of the latest Chrisitan-Muslim Relations project publication.

The lecture is free and open to all, but please register so we can get an idea of numbers for the reception.

The exact location to be confirmed closer to the time.
