About The Event
Date: February 23-25, 2022
Venue: Online & Rice University, 6100 Main St, Houston, TX 77005, USA
A conference investigating the interpretation and reception of the biblical figure of Daniel and its associated uses in Islamic contexts.
In association with the ‘Reading the Bible in the Context of Islam’ research project headed by Dr Ida Glaser at CMCS Oxford, CMCS Houston announces its first research project.
The project will investigate the interpretation of the biblical book of Daniel, the reception of the character of Daniel and the use of associated apocalyptic material in Islamic contexts. It will be particularly concerned with the impact of Daniel (and associated material) on Christian-Muslim relations throughout history, and with consequent links between religious thought and public policy in today’s world.
