18 April 2017, 7 PM - 8:30 PM

The relationship between Arabic script and the divine is as old as the Qur’an itself. In this lecture, Ahmad Moustafa presents his book, The Cosmic Script, in which he argues for the presence of divine revelation in the very forms of Arabic letters, and for their organic connection to the shapes and proportion of the human body.
