Christian Lives Given to the Study of Islam

Maurice Borrmans

Fordham University Press

Borrmans spent his life at PISAI, the Catholic centre for Islamic studies in Rome, after studies in his native France, Tunisia and Algeria. This chapter covers sixty years of engagement in the crucible of Christian-Muslim relations in the spirit of Vatican II as a member of the Missionaries of Africa. A particular relationship is charted with great Francophone contributors such as Anawati, Arkoun and Louis Massignon, the great scholar of al-Hallaj. At the centre of dialogue in the Church, an involvement with PCID and the Journées Romaines come alive through personal experience. At the heart of this Christian experience lies the spiritual encounter with Islam for the service of all, the fulfilment of the world and genuine human co-operation before God.
