HIST 0609 (3)
Soon after its appearance in the seventh century, Islam became an integral part of the ancient world in which Christianity had taken root in previous centuries, resulting in moments of conflict and coexistence in Christian-Muslim encounters. This course will explore some of the religious, political, social, and intellectual encounters between the two religions from late antiquity to the early age of modernity in order to understand their historical background and present implications. Significant points of encounters will provide insights in the dynamic relations between Christians and Muslims. Prerequisite: HIST 0561.
