The event will also be accessible online via the platform Zoom.

The workshop’s objectives are twofold:

  • to further explore the diversity of approaches to Islam and the Qur’an in the early modern period
  • to encourage a reflection on the tools and sources available to scholars for mapping out approaches to Islam’s sacred text during this critical juncture of European history.
