Saturday 3rd October 2020 10.00 - 11.30am.
If Judaism is the Fear of God, Christianity the Love of God, Islam is the Unity of God.
Does the Islamic concept of Unity help to explain the success of Islam as one of the great faiths of mankind?
A doctrinal approach to Islamic art and architecture expresses Unity in Diversity. The underlying essence of Unity in Diversity is also expressed by Plato, Pythagoras and the eastern philosophy of Advaita [non-duality].
We will workshop together ideas and concepts of Unity as they are expressed in some of the great works of Islamic art and architecture.
Through our contemplation together , we may discover insights into Unity, Beauty and Truth.
