Francisco del Río, professor from the Department of Semitic Languages of the University of Barcelona, received one of the awards conferred by the Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) on the best scientific papers presented on its annual conference, which took place in Washington. The award-winning article “The rejection of Muhammad’s message by Jews and Christians. And its effect on Islamic theological argumentation” argues that the basis of the Islamic theory are related to the original discrepancy that existed among this religion and Judaism and Christianity.
