We are happy to present the next exciting topic and film of our ESR Justin Benavidez.
His research focusses on the history of knowledge through the writings of Muhammad al-Qurtubi, from the city of Cordoba. The writings of al-Qurtubi (d. 1273), in particular his commentary of the Qur'an, offer insight into the ways in which ideas about religious knowledge were read, shared, and integrated into mainstream Islamic thought.
Enjoy Justin´s academic storytelling!
