BIPS Workshop - Interactions of Muslim Intellectuals and Institutions with Those of Other Faiths in the Medieval Persianate World

Events • Medieval studies • Workshop

This event is organised by the British Institute of Persian Studies

This workshop will examine the reality of interactions between Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Zoroastrian and other traditions in the period of the 7th-15th century CE. The enquiry has its focus on religious, philosophical, and literary themes in the Persianate world, but the evidence of material culture is also keenly relevant.
