PISAI publishes periodicals devoted to Muslim-Christian Dialogue. All PISAI’s publications are available for purchasing, singly or by subscription.


undefinedIslamochristiana is the annual scientific journal of PISAI explicitly dedicated to Muslim-Christian dialogue. It is composed of three parts: the first part contains in-depth and research studies, reflections and personal witness accounts; the second part, notes and documentation concerning encounters between Christians and Muslims around the world; and the third part, summaries and reviews of books on dialogue. Founded in 1975 and directed for many years by Father Maurice Borrmans, the journal has developed its format over the years. Since 2006, under the direction of Valentino Cottini one part of the studies revolves around a monographic subject chosen each year, while other essays are devoted to Muslim-Christian dialogue in the past and the present. Issues 48 (2022) and 49 (2023) were published under the Interim Editorship of Prof. Diego Sarrió Cucarella with David Marshall as Guest Editor. Islamochristiana is published mainly in French, English and Arabic, but articles and studies are also published in other European languages.
Islamochristiana is listed among the class A scientific journals recognized by MIUR.

Islamochristiana 49 (2023)

The title of this volume, “MAURICE BORRMANS ET MOHAMED TALBI: DE L’AMITIÉ À LA RUPTURE”, has been inspired by a collection of essays that reflect on different aspects of the relationship between these two influential figures in the recent history of Christian-Muslim dialogue, both of whom died in 2017. As the title indicates, the friendship and collaboration in dialogue between Father Borrmans (who was a professor at PISAI for many decades) and Professor Talbi ultimately broke down. These essays tell a fascinating story of two prominent scholars and of their dedicated activity in a significant phase in the history of dialogue. The essays, covering different aspects of their life and work, are kindly offered by Geneviève Gobillot, Florence Javel, Antonio Navarro Carmona, Yosra Garmi and Rémi Caucanas, who also drew this collection of essays together with Michel Younès.

The section “Christian Theological Engagement with Islam” continues the title-theme of last year’s volume, with interesting contributions by Sidney H. Griffiths, Tobias Specker, Daniel Brown, Felix Körner and Gavin D’Costa, this last one based on his lecture at a Study Day held at PISAI on 26 October 2023, in which he analyses the essays on “Christian Theological Engagement with Islam” published in Islamochristiana 48. Two more thematic sections are “Christian-Muslim Relations in History”, with contributions provided by Martino Masolo and Rémi Caucanas; and, finally, the section on “Qurʾānic Studies” including four essays by Joaquín Paniello, Abdullah Saeed and by Moulay Ahmed Saber and Adnane Mokrani in Arabic.

This volume of Islamochristiana also includes the usual section of “Notes and Documents” and a rich number of book reviews.

Etudes arabes

The first edition of ETUDES ARABES appeared at Easter 1962: it consisted of a dossier of about 30 pages, trimestral, with the translation into French of some Arabic texts and targeting those who, having completed studies at PISAI, wished to pursue their linguistic commitment to Islamic Studies. Only on reaching edition No. 8, at Christmas 1964, did it become a real publication with an index of modern Arab authors.
In 1981, ETUDES ARABES became a means of support for Islamic Studies in the form of two annual Dossiers containing monographs. Since 1996, publication has been annual, maintaining the formula of an Arabic text with facing translation. The editorial board is made up of teachers at PISAI.

undefinedThe review Encounter, Documents for Muslim-Christian Understanding, now obsolete, appeared in 1974, in the wake of the setting up of the English section at PISAI. Its primary purpose was to maintain links with former students at PISAI continuing their formation and offering to all its readers documents, research material and witness accounts in the field of Muslim-Christian Dialogue.
