Dealing with Images and Prohibition of Images in Judaism and Islam
Symposium as Part of the Jewish-Islamic Forum
Program surrounding the special exhibition "The Creation of the World. Illustrated Manuscripts from the Braginsky Collection"
Are images prohibited in Judaism and Islam? The symposium explores the question of how images have been handled in different eras, regions, and religious currents in Judaism and Islam, how image bans have been theologically justified and what alternative art forms, such as calligraphy, have formed as a result.
Here you will find the conference program, abstracts of the presentations, and brief profiles of the speakers.
