Faces of Muhammad: Western Perceptions of the Prophet Of Islam from the Middle Ages To Today

6:00 pm
Event Status
As Scheduled

You are invited to participate in the Spring 2021 book discussion with Dr. Patrick Hughes (Religious Studies, University of Pittsburgh). John V. Tolan’s book Faces of Muhammad explores the many and various ways that Europeans (and Americans) have understood, portrayed, and interpreted the life and legacy of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam. The strength of Tolan’s book is that it shows both the negative and the positive ways that Westerners have viewed Muhammad at different times and in different contexts—from those who showed outright hostility, to others who used Muhammad for their own polemical purposes, to those who viewed him with grudging respect or outright admiration.
