Conference: People of the Prophet’s House

People of the Prophet’s House: art, architecture and Shiism in the Islamic world

26-28 March, BP Lecture Theatre, British Museum

"This three-day international conference tries to ascertain what Shiʿa Islam is and whether we can identify art and material culture that is inherently Shiʿi. Papers cover topics from shrine and mosque architecture and manuscript painting to iconography, ritual and cinema."
