Maimonides and Averroes, two sages who illuminated Medieval thought

This series took place onFrom to

In twelfth-century Córdoba, two sages were born with very few years difference, the first Muslim, Ibn Rushd, Averroes, and the second Jewish, Mosheh ben Maimon, Maimonides. Besides philosophers, both were also doctors and jurists, and became two of the most influential figures of Medieval thought, not only for their scholarship, but their respect for ideas from other religions and cultures.

In this series of two lectures, Mariano Gómez Aranda, a research scientist at the Department of Jewish and Islamic Studies at the CSIC, and Andrés Martínez Lorca, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the UNED, will discuss the profiles of Maimonides and Averroes, respectively.
