Reason and Belief: Theological Debates in the Medieval and Early Modern Islamic West
Proyecto de I+D de Generación de Conocimiento, Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica y Técnica y de Innovación PGC2018-099268-A-I00 (2019-2021)
This project seeks to explore how theologians in the medieval and early modern Islamic West (that is, al-Andalus and North Africa) view the relation between reason and religious belief. The project delves deep into the sorely understudied textual corpus produced by Ashʿarite theologians from the Islamic West: it makes extensive use of unpublished manuscript material and the rich source of neglected literature that has come to light only very recently.
