This course explores Catholic views of Islam from the Middle Ages to the present, and will touch topics such as the Crusades, the role of Mary, and the development of the dialogue during the 20th century.
The course will have exceptional guest speakers; among them, Dr. Mathieu Caesar from the University of Geneve (Switzerland), a scholar on the Crusades, and Dr. Rita Trvkovick, who is working on the devotion to Mary in the Muslim world. Finally, it will discuss some contemporary aspects of the Catholic-Muslim dialogue.
The class is cross-listed by Catholic Studies, Religious Studies, Political Science, and the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies/Sciences in Interdisciplinary Studies.
