We are pleased to announce the holding of the next IDEO’s seminar, in English on Wednesday November 13ᵗʰ, 2019 at 5pm. N. A. Mansour, PhD candidate at Princeton University, will present a lecture on the topic: “The History of Devotion to the Prophet Muhammad through its Manuscripts”.
This presentation will look at the social, cultural and intellectual history of the Prophet Muhammad through the manuscript tradition. It will argue that devotional literature is central to understanding the history of non-elites and that these devotional works give us insight into the religious practice of Muslim societies beyond the ulema.
