Lecture: The European "Bilderverbot": Jews, Muslims and the Prohibition that Never Was

Do, 12.05.2022, 19–20:15 Uhr
Museum Rietberg

On the occasion of the special exhibition «In the Name of the Image»

Although neither tradition has a central “image prohibition”, the claim of one has periodically served to alienate Judaism and Islam from European norms considered modern and secular. In light of the Protestant aversion to images in sixteenth century Europe, this lecture investigates the connotations of “image prohibition” as attributed to Judaism and Islam since the eighteenth century.
