In this week’s meeting, our guest, an advanced law student in Chicago who has served for some time in the Saudi judiciary and comes from a family of scholars and lawyers extend back over a century, discusses the fascinating mosaic of scholarly activity in Arabia before and during the advent of the Wahhabi movement in the 18th century. The speaker draws from his own experience and research to discuss some history of a region that on balance receives relatively little attention from contemporary scholars.
