WINTER TERM 2019
Public Lecture – Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition
Professor Omid Safi
27 March 2019 at 6PM
Love-based devotion and poetry have always been at the heart of the Islamic tradition. With the development of the school of Islamic spirituality known as Mazhab-e ‘Eshq (Path of Divine Love), these were elevated to an even higher zenith. This lecture will present some of the masters of this sacred path, with special attention to Mawlana Rumi, ‘Attar, Ahmad Ghazali, and Kharaqani. The Path of Divine Love Muslim mystics began with a bold claim: that there is ultimately One Love, a love that emanates from God’s own being, brings us here, and will deliver us back to our celestial home.
