UIMP Summer School
The ERC Project EuQu will be holding a seminar at the University of Mendendez Pelayo in Santander, Spain.
Monday 22 March – Friday 26 June, 2021
The objective of this seminar is to analyse the role that the Qur’an had in interactions with Islam in modern and medieval Europe, in debates between Christians of various persuasions and doctrines and in criticism of Christianity during the Enlightenment, among other areas of investigation.
Throughout the sessions, we will examine the translations of the Qur’an, texts of religious controversy and European collections of Arabic manuscripts. Moreover, the presentations will be complemented with round-table debates where the most representative case studies will be explained. Note that the course will be taught by a group of leading international specialists in the field.
