‘Philosophical, Theological Exchanges between Christians, Muslims’ Published in Netherlands

A book tiled "Ideas in Motion in Baghdad and Beyond: Philosophical and Theological Exchanges Between Christians and Muslims in the Third/Ninth and Fourth/Tenth Centuries" was published Netherlands.

Hawzah News Agency (Amsterdam, Netherlands) -  A book tiled "Ideas in Motion in Baghdad and Beyond: Philosophical and Theological Exchanges Between Christians and Muslims in the Third/Ninth and Fourth/Tenth Centuries" was published by the Brill Publishing House in Leiden, the Netherlands.

 

The book, edited by Damien Janos, contains a collection of articles focusing on the philosophical and theological exchanges between Muslim and Christian intellectuals living in Baghdad during the classical period of Islamic history, when this city was a vibrant center of philosophical, scientific, and literary activity.

 

The philosophical accomplishments and contribution of Christians writing in Arabic and Syriac represent a component of Islamic society during this period, but they have typically been studied in isolation from the development of mainstream Islamic philosophy.

 

The present book aims for a more integrated approach by exploring case studies of philosophical and theological cross-pollination between the Christian and Muslim traditions, with an emphasis on the Baghdad School and its main representative, Yaḥya ibn Adi.
