Description

The artistic and intellectual exchanges between Christians and Muslims left enduring traces and belong to some of the most complex developments of the medieval period. Fundamental questions remain about the way these exchanges came about and were perceived. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, participants examine the points of interaction and the processes by which Christians and Muslims exchanged ideas and techniques; they will also analyze how Christians and Muslims conceptualized and reflected on these exchanges. Through case studies on such diverse topics as manuscript painting, textiles, calligraphy, and translation, this session seeks to establish commonalities and determining differences
