Research Seminar: Ex Oriente Lux

Azneh seminar
Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 12:40 pm – 1:30 pm

This talk will provide a briefing on a book on the history of unbelief from late antiquity to the eighteenth century. It will indicate pathways through which Abbasid freethinking motifs meandered around the Mediterranean to combine eventually with intellectual, aesthetic and political attitudes to religion in western Europe.

CEMS Research Seminars are informal, lunchtime gatherings at which CEMS members present their current or recent research in a friendly, low-stakes environment. The presentations are brief (15-20mins) and ample time is left for discussion. The idea is to become more familiar with one another's research and encourage conversations within CEMS. In this way, we hope to strengthen the internal community and benefit from the excellent scholarship in which our colleagues are engaged.
