Scholar, philosopher and theologian Henry Corbin (1903-1978) ‘was devoted to the struggle to free the religious imagination from fundamentalisms of every kind. His work marks a watershed in our understanding of the religions of the West and makes a profound contribution to the study of the place of the imagination in human life.’ Tom Cheetham http://henrycorbinproject.blogspot.com/ One of the 20th century’s most prolific scholars of Islamic mysticism, Corbin was Professor of Islam & Islamic Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris and at the University of Tehran and was a major figure at the Eranos Conferences in Switzerland.

After a brief introduction to Corbin’s life and work, the spiritual reading group will, through a process similar to Lectio Divina, interact with a small selection of Corbin’s writings, taken from his prolific output.
