I am so honoured to be in dialogue with my old friend Professor Sara Sviri from the
Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Sara is a world expert on the Sufi traditions and has chosen to present on Ibn Arabi and the inter-religious dialogue of medieval Spain. This prompted me to make a study of the figure I have illustrated on the right of this blog - Ramon Llull. My paper is not complete but it is entrancing to enter the life and thought of this remarkable man and I am really looking forward to dialoguing with Sara on his relevance to today.
Other highlights from the conference will be the launch of a new edition of Ecclesiam Suam with an introduction from the eminent ecumenicist Archbishop Kevin McDonald.
All good wishes
