Oxford will host a peace and interfaith education event that will encompass musical performances and informative lectures as part of World Interfaith Harmony Week.

Set for February 10, the event, organised by Oxford Interfaith Forum, will start at the Ashmolean Museum at 11am with 'Interfaith Harmony: Singing Together, Across Languages and Times'.

This will present music from medieval religious illuminated manuscripts from the Bodleian Library.

The performance will also feature songs in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, German, and English for all to join, and will be interspersed with the sound of shofar and shell horn.

Professor Henrike Lähnemann will be working with the St Edmund Consort and the Bodleian Library for the performance.

The Johannes Lähnemann Interfaith Peacebuilding Education Lecture will begin at 2pm at the Taylor Institution Library, with keynote speaker Professor Azza Karam.

His Excellency Manar M. Dabbas, Ambassador of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to the United Kingdom will provide a welcome.

There will also be a book presentation of ‘Interreligious Learning and Peace Education: A History of Religions for Peace’ by Professor Johannes Lähnemann with Dr Reinhard Krauss.

Professor Johannes Lähnemann is a Member of Peace Education Standing Commission (PESC) of the international movement Religions for Peace.

His main research fields are ‘World Religions in Education’ and ‘Religions and Peace Education’.
