Minlib Dallh, o.p., is the H.M. King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein of Jordan Fellow for the Study of Love in Religion at Regent’s Park College, Oxford.
Following a doctorate at the University of Exeter in Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations, he taught at Hartford Seminary (CT), Loyola University New Orleans (LA), and Candler School of Theology at Emory University (GA).
His research focuses on comparative mysticism in Islam and Christianity, with special interest in love-mysticism, and the contribution of women mystics in both faith traditions. His book, A Sufi and a Friar. A Mystical Encounter of Two Men of God in the Abode of Islam was published by SUNY Press in 2017.
In the ‘Love in Religion’ project, Minlib focuses on the mysticism of love in its mediaeval and modern forms. Currently, he is working on a monograph entitled Female Mystics in Medieval and Early Modernity in Islam.
