Resumen del Seminario sobre al-Ghazālī

That the thought of Abū Ḥāmid al-Ghazālī (d. 1111) was violently opposed in al-Andalus during his lifetime and in the first decades following his death is well known.  A comprehensive account of the context and causes of this opposition has eluded scholars.  This talk will provide new background and details about al-Ghazālī and the controversy over his Revival of the Religious Sciences in al-Andalus and the Maghrib in the 6th/12th century, as well as suggesting the limits of what we can know barring the discovery of new sources.
