This two-day international conference, Tue 22 – Wed 23 Nov 2016, explores the life and thought of Louis Massignon within an ecumenical and dialogical perspective.
Louis Massignon (25 July 1883 – 31 October 1962) was a Melkite Greek Catholic Priest, a Catholic scholar of Islam and a well-known religious and political figure in the relationship between France, Europe and the Middle East. The conference will seek to contextualise his work in the ecclesial and theological of his time and how he continues to influence wider Christian thought today, especially with regard to the modern Papacy and Ecumenical engagement.
It has been organised by the Centre for Eastern Christianity in association with the Centre for Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue at Heythrop College, University of London.
