Denise Spellberg: Thomas Jefferson's Qur'an: Islam and the Founders

This lecture will explore how America’s founding fathers drew upon Enlightenment ideas about the toleration of Muslims in conceptualizing a system of governance that would provide full citizenship and  equality for all religious groups at the time of the founding of the United States. 
The lecture is organized as part of the Abbasi Program's Islam in America Lecture Series. Copies of Professor Spellberg’s book, Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an: Islam and the Founders (Knopf, 2013), will be available for purchase at the venue.
