The Saladin Days

The Saladin Days aim to reconsider the idea of an eternal conflict between Christians and Muslims, and to discuss the possibility of coexistence and tolerance.

The International Saladin Days were instituted in 2009 by the House of Literature in Oslo, Norway, after an initiative from the Norwegian author Thorvald Steen and the British-Pakistani historian and author Tariq Ali.

Every year, authors, artists, activist, academics and intellectuals come to Oslo to discuss the possibility of coexistence and tolerance, instead of conflict and prejudice, in the meeting between people and countries from the so called Islamic, Christian and Jewish cultures.
