Interreligious conflict -- and, with it, many questions about the role of scripture in that conflict -- is once again at center stage in our geopolitical consciousness. Do the respective claims of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic holy texts contribute to the violence between the various communities that read them? Or do they provide a basis for solidarity between the three Abrahamic religions? In this talk, David Nirenberg will examine how the Qu'ran, Torah, and New Testament have been read at different moments in history -- including our own -- in order to consider the politics of conflict and community among the "peoples of the Book."

Please note that the webcast will begin promptly at 2:45 PM PST (5:45 EST).
