God’s Unruly Friends: Libertine Sufis in Historical Perspective

10 Jan '18 6.00 - 8.30 pm
 
 

From the thirteenth century onward, there was a marked upsurge in the number of itinerant bands of Muslim mendicants who roamed the countryside and a proliferation of solitary enraptured saints who inhabited liminal spaces around towns and villages. This talk will explore the history of these libertine dervishes as well as some of their beliefs and practices.

This is the fourth Deccan Heritage Foundation, India, Mirella Petteni Haggiag annual lecture, initiated to bring awareness to a Deccani tangible or intangible subject.

This public lecture is part of a course Islamic Aesthetics: In Praise of Aj’aib, the Wondrous
