    Abdolkarim Soroush is an Iranian thinker, reformer, Rumi scholar and a former professor at the university of Tehran. He is arguably the most influential figure in Iran’s religious intellectual movement. Professor Soroush is currently a visiting scholar at the University of Maryland. He was previously affiliated with Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Columbia and the Wissenschaftkolleg in Berlin. His ideas founded on relativism prompted both supporters and critics to compare his role in reforming Islam to that of Martin Luther in reforming Christianity. He won the Erasmus Prize in 2004, he was named one of the world’s 100 most influential intellectuals in 2008. Foreign Policy magazine named him among the 100 top elite intellectuals in 2009 and 2010.
