CCSMSC Colloquium Series are part of the Centre’s ongoing mission to encourage and enrich academic coverage of Muslim societies and cultures. Unlike the annual lecture series, which is designed to appeal to a broad audience, the colloquia tend to attract mainly faculty members and students and take the form of small seminars.
Free and open to the public. To access the reading for the seminar click here.
This splendid introduction allows students to begin to understand and appreciate the role of the Qur’an for Muslims. Professor Ernst’s unique approach provides a thorough overview of the scholarship--historical and contemporary, Muslim and non-Muslim--on the Qur’an.
—Amir Hussain, Professor of Theological Studies, Loyola Marymount College.
