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 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.
