ISLAM AND THE DEVOTIONAL OBJECT: A DISCUSSION
The past decade has seen a proliferation of scholarship on material dimensions of Islamic belief and practice. From amulets to devotional paintings, shrine visitation and relics, a range of subjects once marginal to the historical study of Islam is now attracting attention in disciplines ranging from art history and anthropology to religious studies.

A recent publication on the topic provides an appropriate occasion to revisit some of these developments and their implications. In this workshop, Richard McGregor will discuss his book, Islam and the Devotional Object: Seeing Religion in Egypt and Syria (Cambridge University Press, 2020) with a panel composed of scholars who have published on material devotion in Islam, its histories and historiographies.

Feb 19, 2021 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
