Jews, Christians and Muslims in Europe: Modern Challenges

Street scene



The online course Jews, Christians and Muslims in Europe: Modern Challenges focuses on the relationships between Jews, Christians and Muslims in modern Europe and in European history. It consists of three modules (part-time and flexible), lasting for four weeks each.

Besides the historical topics, such as interreligious relations in medieval Spain, Enlightenment Britain, and 20th Century Germany, the participants will engage with contemporary topics such as the relation of religion, ethnicity and citizenship in Bosnia and Herzegovina; the Muhammad cartoons controversy in Denmark; the social reality of Syrian refugees in Sweden; Jewish-Muslim relations in France; and the discussions about religion and freedom of expression in the wake of Charlie Hebdo attacks.

Students will be encouraged to address challenging questions through case studies and set readings (in sociology, history, anthropology, and theology).

On completion, participants will receive a Woolf Institute Certificate of Completion.
