About this item

Describing herself as a historian interested in the secular question of how a new religion arose, and with an intertextual approach, Crone seeks in Volume 1 to reconstruct the religion of Mohammed’s opponents, to locate other clues to the religious environment in which Islam arose, and to find the place of religious developments in the Near East. Fifteen chapters are: how did the Quranic pagans make a living; Quraysh and the Roman army; the religion of the Qur’anic pagans; angels versus humans as messengers of God; the Quranic Mushrikun and the Resurrection (Part I); the Quranic Mushrikun (Part II); the Book of Watchers in the Qur’an; war; Jewish Christianity and the Qur’an (Part I); Jewish Christianity and the Qur’an (Part II); pagan Arabs as god-fearers; problems in Sura; no compulsion in religion: Q.2:256 in medieval and modern interpretation; Islam and religious freedom; tribes without saints.
