HIST100WCPO - Earliest Christian Views of Islam

When Offered: Offered alternate years; next offered fall 2016.
Instructor(s): K. Wolf
Credit: 1

Over the course of the century following Muhammad’s death in 632, Muslim armies dominated the eastern, southern and western shores of the Mediterranean, areas that, up until then, had been in Christian hands. How Christian commentators came to terms with this religio-political transformation of their world is the subject of this seminar. Primary sources drawn primarily from Greek, Syriac, Arabic and Latin authors will be supplemented by the works of modern scholars. Letter grade only. (Ancient and Medieval Mediterranean)
This course has been revised for 2016-17.
