The Quran Between Judaism and Christianity

Date: 17 September, 16 October & 4 December 2016

Venue: University of Nottingham, Nottingham NG7 2RD, UK

A series of public lectures funded by the British Academy, hosted at the University of Nottingham and co-sponsored by the Karimia Institute, seeking to enhance the public understanding of the Qur'an by focusing on the ways in which the Scripture of Islam relates to Judaism and to Christianity.

On three days in autumn 2016, prominent and emerging academics from the UK, from mainland Europe, and from overseas will address how the Qur'an relates to aspects of the two other “Abrahamic” traditions, ranging from Biblical narrative to theology and law. The talks will be followed by a response and a discussion.

Attendance is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
