Event description

Description

Investigate the early encounters between Jews and Muslims as we explore the origins of Islam in the Arabian Peninsula beginning in the 7th century. In the fall semester, we will read sections of the Quran as a primary key to understanding the values and beliefs of Islam. We will compare the Quran’s references to biblical characters such as Abraham, Ishmael, Moses and Ezra.
