Islam, the Ancient Near East and Varieties of Godlessness : Collected Studies in Three Volumes - image 1 of 1

about this item

Originating in Crone’s February 2013 visit to Leiden, subsequent discussions grew into the present collection. Most articles are reprinted, some are published for the first time. Each volume focuses on a particular theme. The first volume brings together studies on the community from which Muhammed emerged and the book that he brought. The second is dedicated to Iranian religious trends both before and after the arrival of Islam. This third volume treats Islam in the historical context of the ancient Near East, with special attention to materialists, sceptics and other “godless” people.
