Images of Jesus in Christian and Muslim Sacred Writings (SC-636)

Drawing on the canonical scriptures of the two traditions (the Bible and the Qur’an) in conversation with other sources such as apocryphal gospels, Patristic writings, Hadith, and hagiographic literature, we will study the birth, mission, death, resurrection and eschatological role of Jesus in Christianity and Islam—and the closely related matter of the life and status of his mother Mary. While this is a course in comparative theology, attention will be given to the role of Jesus and Mary in personal and communal piety.
