Suitable for all

Franco Cardini is the third guest in the cycle of five lectures delivered by some of the most distinguished contemporary historians.The lectures will investigate the European dimension by reflecting on the human urge to cross borders, whether driven by curiosity or despair, hunger or the desire to conquer and always transforming themselves and others.

Christianitas: all those who believe in Christ, but also the space they consider their own.

Dar al-Islam, the territory of the consent to God’s will as opposed to Dar al-Harb, the land of the non-believers and, therefore, the land of war.

Two territories that each of the faiths deems are within their exclusive purview, that can grow or shrink following historical events. From Jerusalem to Cordoba, Christians and Muslims fight over their places of worship and churches are turned into mosques while mosques become churches…

For the pilgrim-fighters, crusades and jihad are paradoxical acts of love and the pilgrimage, both in Christianity and Islam, is a journey to eternity.
