Title: Is there anyone listening? Christian-Islamic polemics 780-870
Author: Kist, anne Willem
Issue Date: 2017-08-31
Keywords: early abbasid chriistian-islamic polemics on the trinity and God's attributes
Abstract: This examination of polemical theologian literature of the 8th/9th century Baghdad aims at establishing whether or not cross influence between Church of the East and Islamic authors occurred. In contrast to present day scholarly opinion, this paper holds that, in distinctive ways, each of the intellectual elite communities appropriated ideas and modes of argumentation of the other.
