Cambridge Muslim College recently hosted its first academic symposium, titled ‘From Revelation to Scripture: A Symposium on Divine Speech and Prophetic Inspiration’. Ten papers were presented by an international group of scholars, including participants based in the USA, Italy, Iran, Norway and Germany. Lively and intellectually rich discussions were held during the interdisciplinary panels, as well as during the breaks. The outcome was an exploration of diverse Islamic traditions and contemporary Muslim thinkers through presentations of academic research that was, in turns, enlightening, surprising and entertaining.
The CMC would like to thank the hard work of its staff and the positive engagement of all participants. We look forward to organising similar events in the future.
