UNDERSTANDING MATURIDI KALAM: LEGACY, PRESENT & FUTURE CHALLENGES
28th-29th October 2017
9am (Jordan) • 2am EST
For over a millennia the Ash‘ari and Maturidi Schools of Theology have been one of the most prevalent in the Muslim world. While the Ash‘ari School is considered mainstream and studied heavily, the Maturidi School has not, however, received much scholarly attention, despite being recognized as one of the main expressions of Muslim orthodoxy. This conference organised by Kalam Research & Media (KRM) in partnership with the John Templeton Foundation (JTF) aims to shed further light on the Maturidi school through an analysis of its historical emergence and spread; investigating its theological and philosophical theories; exploring the broader cultural, social and political contexts within which the school developed; and contemporary challenges and the viability of its engagement with the Big Questions. This Conference is especially suitable for religious scholars, traditionally-trained seminarians, academics, and experts to facilitate the engagement of analytic approaches and concerns revolving around Maturidi thought. The conference will be held in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
