Elizabeth DePalma Digeser
Elizabeth DePalma Digeser
Elizabeth DePalma Digeser, professor of history, has published "A Threat to Piety — Christians, Platonists, and the Great Persecution" (Cornell University Press, 2012). Digeser reexamines the origins of the Great Persecution (303-313 A.D.), the last eruption of pagan violence against Christians before Constantine enforced the tolerance of Christianity within the Empire. She explores reasons why pagans and Christians, who had intermingled cordially and productively for decades, became so sharply divided by the turn of the century.
Ahmad Atif Ahmad
Ahmad Atif Ahmad
Ahmad Atif Ahmad, associate professor of religious studies, has published "The Fatigue of the Shari'a" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012). Ahmad places on a continuum two kinds of debates — those in the Islamic tradition about the end of access to divine guidance, and those in modern scholarship in Islamic legal studies about the end of the Shari'a. The resulting continuum covers what access to divine guidance means, and how it relates to Shari'a, whether the end of this access is possible, and what should be done in this case.
