Event – November 26 | Simon Fraser University, Vancouver: Shainool Jiwa – Religious Pluralism and Pragmatic Governance: The Mediterranean Experience during Fatimid Rule

During their two and a half century rule (909-1171 CE), the Fatimid rulers, known as Imam-caliphs, developed a model of governance recognised both in medieval and modern times for its inclusivity.

The lecture will discuss the extent to which Fatimid policy was the result of the interplay between doctrinal commitments and their lived experience, tempered by local conditions and communal dynamics.
