Islam and Christianity in Dialogue…

Encounters or Clashes? The relations between Christians and Muslims represent not only a historical issue but a real challenge for our time. Like Beethoven’s Sonata No. 14 in C minor (the “Moonlight Sonata”) was composed in three movements, we can interpret the recent history of Christian-Muslim relations in three movements and discover some inspiring insights.


Rémi Caucanas
teaches history of Islamic-Christian relations at Saint Paul University, is an associate researcher at the Institut de Recherches et d’Études sur le Monde Arabo-Musulman (IREMAM, Aix-en-Provence, France) and at the Pontifical Institute for Studies in Arabic and Islamology (PISAI, Rome, Italy). He is a board member of the Dante Alighieri Society of Ottawa.
