TEHRAN (IQNA) – A book tiled “Ideas in Motion in Baghdad and Beyond: Philosophical and Theological Exchanges Between Christians and Muslims in the Third/Ninth and Fourth/Tenth Centuries” was published by the Brill Publishing House in Leiden, the Netherlands.

  “Philosophical and Theological Exchanges Between Christians and Muslims” Published in Netherlands 


According to, the book, edited by Damien Janos, contains a collection of articles focusing on the philosophical and theological exchanges between Muslim and Christian intellectuals living in Baghdad during the classical period of Islamic history, when this city was a vibrant center of philosophical, scientific, and literary activity.

The philosophical accomplishments and contribution of Christians writing in Arabic and Syriac represent a component of Islamic society during this period, but they have typically been studied in isolation from the development of mainstream Islamic philosophy.

The present book aims for a more integrated approach by exploring case studies of philosophical and theological cross-pollination between the Christian and Muslim traditions, with an emphasis on the Baghdad School and its main representative, Yaḥya ibn ʿAdi.
