Justice & Mercy: Christian & Muslim perspectives


ROME — The Lay Centre is pleased to host an evening of reflection on the theme “Justice & Mercy: Christian and Muslim Perspectives.”

The event, which will be held May 3 at 6 p.m., has been organized on the occasion of the annual visit of the Cambridge Muslim College and the Center of Islamic Theology of Tubingen University to The Lay Centre in Rome.

See more details in the flyer below.

The Cambridge study group consists of students of the Diploma in Contextual Islamic Studies and Leadership from the Cambridge Muslim College. They are  mainly graduates from Muslim seminaries in the United Kingdom and are, as such, young British Muslim religious leaders. They are attending the course at the Cambridge Muslim College where they learn about science, art, history and inter-faith relations. As part of the academic program, the college organizes trips to help the students gain a better understanding of the issues concerned, and it is with this mind that this visit to Rome has been organized. Please visit their website for more information:

They will be joined by graduate students from the Center of Islamic Theology,Tübingen University, who are in a two-semester M.A. program,  entitled “Islamic Theology in a European Context.” Their professor, an alumna of The Lay Centre, is Prof. Dr. Lejla Demiri:
