Eighteen colleagues from i.a. KU Leuven, IDEO, UCL, Université de Provence, University of Birmingham and Institut Catholique de Paris have contributed to this Liber Amicorum offered to Prof. em. Emilio Platti o.p. Perspectives on Islamic Culture consists of three parts, reflecting the threefold academic interest of Emilio Platti, expressed both in his numerous lectures and publications. The volume opens with a number of textcritical studies that offer a detailed analysis of primary Muslim sources, ranging from the Quran itself to a late nineteenth-century collection of majalis (mourning gatherings). A second part of this volume discusses, from different perspectives, the historical and contemporary relations and dialogue between Islam and Christianity. A third and final part is devoted to a series of studies on the emerging European Islam and the challenges it faces.
