About the lectures
The fourteen century relationship between the Christian
and Muslim communities is a long and complex one, with
many different dimensions.
The first two decades of the twenty-first century have
now seen a number of significant developments in
Christian-Muslim relations around the world, whether in
the strictly theological sense or in the broader cultural and
political senses. Some of these are positive, whilst others
are more negative.
This lecture will assess the current state of the relationship
between the two communities, and suggest whether
there is cause for optimism or for pessimism with regard
to its future.
