Biografie (woord)

Christian Lange is Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies at Utrecht University. He is the author of Justice, Punishment and the Medieval Muslim Imagination (Cambridge, 2012) and the editor of several scholarly volumes, including Locating Hell in Islamic Traditions (2015). From 2011 to 2015, he was Principal Investigator of the European Research Council project, 'The Here and the Hereafter in Islamic Traditions'. He is a member of the Young Academy of the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences.


'Not only is this the first comprehensive study of the eternal abodes in Islamic thought, but Christian Lange has uttered the final word on the Islamic imagination on paradise and hell - a word well-grounded on an amazing source-based review of Islamic literature and traditions.' Roberto Tottoli, Università di Napoli L'Orientale
