The Department of Theology and Religion is pleased to welcome you to this special seminar triple-header, which will introduce two brand new projects, and one ongoing project, in theology and religious studies. The seminar will include short presentations from:

  • Oliver Scharbrodt on his European Research Council-funded project: Creating an alternative umma: Clerical authority and religio-political mobilisation in transnational Shi'i Islam
  • David Thomas and colleagues on the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project: Christian-Muslim Relations, a bibliographical history - challenges to completing the last two hundred years
  • Hugh Houghton on the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project: Codex Zacynthius, an early biblical commentary palimpsest in Cambridge University Library

The seminar will be followed by a light lunch.

The lecture is free and open to all, but please register online so we can get an idea of numbers for the lunch. Please email George Dibble if you are planning on attending and have any dietary requirements.
