Mary the Mother of Jesus: a Connection for Muslims and Christians?
April 11 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Mary the Mother of Jesus–for Christians and Muslims? Some say the figure of Mary is a bridge of dialogue, others a bone of contention between Muslims and Christians. But most Christians are surprised to learn that the Quran has an entire chapter (Sura 19) named after her! Two national scholars, Dr. Rita George-Tvrtkovic of Benedictine University and Dr. Younus Mirza of Shenandoah and Georgetown Universities will address the importance of Mary in each tradition and as an intersection of mutual learning and theological reflection.
