LRC Director

Mushegh Asatryan is Associate Professor of Arabic and Muslim Cultures, at SLLLC, and Adjunct Professor at the Department of Religion and Classics. 

Asatryan works on the religious and intellectual history of the premodern Middle East, and his work explores Muslim heresiology, the continuity between Late Antique religious trends and Muslim sectarianism, antinomianism, and religious polemics. He is the author of Controversies in Formative Shi'i Islam (I. B. Tauris, 2017) and has two books forthcoming. One is a study and translation of the 10th-century Mu’tazili theologian al-Khayyat's Kitab al-Intisar (under review with Gorgias Press); and the other is a critical edition (with David Hollenberg) of Manhaj al-'ilm, a cosmological and religious text from 11th-century Syria.
