Former Archbishop Rowan Williams and Prof Mona Siddiqui in conversation

By Press Office
February 27, 2017

This is a unique opportunity to join two internationally reknowned figures – Lord Rowan Williams of Oystermouth (former Archbishop of Canterbury and Master of Magdalene College Cambridge) and Dr Mona Siddiqi (Professor of Islamic and Interreligious Studies at the University of Edinburgh) – as they discuss relations between Islam and Christianity in an interpersonal, interreligious and geopolitical context.

In the last fifteen years, conflict in the Middle East and beyond has resulted in the exchange between Christians and Muslims becoming increasingly challenging, with misunderstanding and stereotyping present on both sides and beyond. Are there fresh ways of looking at Christian-Muslim relations that will lead to a more hopeful and open future for all of us in a fractured, mixed belief world?

The event, the third in the Ekklesia/Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church 'Creative Conversations' series, will be chaired by Ekklesia director, Simon Barrow.
