This workshop will introduce you to two fundamental pieces of the Islamic religious tradition - prophet and scripture - through reading and discussion of selected texts.  We’ll try to understand how each emerged historically and in dialogue with Jewish and Christian teachings, and how each fits within the broader Islamic tradition.  Time permitting, we’ll also consider modern Muslim readings of the Qur’an and interpretations of Muhammad’s career.
