This volume—co-edited by Dr. Ryann Craig, director of student programs at the Berkley Center, and Dr. Vasile-Octavian Mihoc—explores Arab Christianity from its early interactions with Islam to the present day. Although contributing authors come from a variety of disciplines, they all address cultural and religious encounters between Christians and Muslims from different times and places. The anthology comprises essays developed during a summer school on “Arabic Christianity: History, Culture, Language, Theology, Liturgy,” held at the Faculty for Roman Catholic Theology, University of Münster between July 18 to August 12, 2016. Contested Coexistence is published by Harrassowitz Verlag.
