James Allan - Professor of Eastern Art, former curator of the Ashmolean’s Islamic collection, and one of CMCS’ academic advisers – gave his lecture on Thursday 18th January in the Headley Lecture Theatre at the Ashmolean Museum.
In medieval times there was a surprisingly constant flow of goods between Christian and Muslim communities. Prof Allan explored objects made for Christian patrons within the Islamic world, and much more.
The event was organised by the Ashmolean as part of its exhibition on Imagining the Divine.
