The Origins of Islam & the Arab Conquests c. AD 550 - AD 750 Wednesdays 19.30 2016/17

It is a truism to say that the origins of Islam and its development in the 7th and 8th centuries continue to shape events in the Middle East and further afield. This course puts Mohammed into his proper historical context and explores the numerous contemporary witnesses to his movement, including the important non-Islamic sources. We will look at the different traditional and revisionist scholarly approaches that have flourished in the last 30 years of research as they attempt to explain some of the most momentous events in world history.
