“Islam: Truth and Beauty”


The Alhambra
Granada, Spain


I’m pleased to announce that a video of the lecture given at BYU’s Museum of Art in early September by Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the most distinguished Islamic thinkers of the past century, is now available for viewing on line.  It’s entitled “Islam: Truth and Beauty”:




I’m personally quite pleased at this, because, even though his coming was at least partly my idea, and even though I played a modest role in arranging for his visit to campus, I missed his lecture because  I had to be in Istanbul at the time.  I know, I know.  Rough life.  And it’s true:  It wasn’t a bad alternative, but still . . .  I would like to have been able to attend his lecture.
