Medieval Philosophy Reading Group

Font St Peters Cambridge

The Medieval Philosophy Reading Group consists of interested undergraduates, graduates and professional scholars who meet once a week in term to read and discuss a medieval philosophical text (in translation). No previous knowledge of medieval philosophy is assumed, and everyone is welcome.


Our regular meeting time is on Wednesdays, 1.15 – 2.15 p.m., in the Old College Office, Trinity College (just by the Great Gate). We start on May 1. But the first meeting (and two of the other meetings) will be taking place, at the same time, not in the Old College Office, but the Wolfson Building North Seminar room, Trinity College. This term we are reading extracts in translation from a work, the Irshad, by an eleventh century Islamic philosopher, Juwayni. I shall send a copy of the text we are studying to anyone who contacts me.

Although you are welcome just to turn up, if you send an e-mail to John Marenbon ( he can give you further information and send you the text we shall be discussing.
