Jesus, Mohammed and modern identities
Jesus and Muhammad are symbol characters for each world religion, and are often pitted against each other in religious clashes. In this seminar, we will attempt a more dialogic comparison of presentations of Jesus and Muhammad as historical figures who also have a role as role models for current religious identity.
