Online Short Course: Warfare in Muslim Material Cultures – From Egypt to Bilad al-Sham

10 November '20 at 2:00 pm - 11 November '20 at 6:00 pm

Online short course on “Warfare in Muslim Material Cultures: From Egypt to Bilad al-Sham” by Professor Stephane Pradines from the Aga Khan University’s Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations, London, and Natasha Bennett from the Royal Armouries Museum, UK.

The course presents Muslim material cultures in a very specific context: warfare in the Middle East and Egypt during the Medieval and Modern Ages. War played a very important role in Muslim cultures and through the study of military architecture and arms and amour, the course will explore art and architecture in a war context to explain identity and changes in Muslim societies from the Arab conquest to the eve of the colonial period. Most of the arms and armour which will be presented during the course are from the Royal Armouries’ collections, from some of its most well-known treasures to objects rarely made available for public view.
