Christianity and Islam: Way-Stations on a Journey
Monday, February 13, 2012, 4:00 pm / McGill Faculty Club (3450 McTavish St., Montreal)
The Cundill Lecture was delivered by Prof. Diarmaid MacCulloch, Kt, winner of the Cundill Prize in 2010 for his book “A History of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years.”
MacCulloch's lecture, 'Christianity and Islam: Way-stations on a Journey', considered the relationship between Islam and Christianity throughout history, exposing how each religion borrowed ideas and practices from the other. Exploring this rich history is critical to understand and manage present difficulties.
Diarmaid MacCulloch is a fellow of St Cross College, Oxford, a Fellow of the British Academy and professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University.
