Introduction to Islam I. History of Islam

- Nicolle Samadi
- École pratique des hautes études – Institut européen en sciences des religions (France)

This first module on Islam uses a historical approach to see how this religion has been developing from the preaching of Muhammad up to the present day. As it is impossible to treat everything, some themes and periods were privileged: the emergence of Islam, the great conquests, the holy scriptures, the separation between Sunnis and Shi’a, recent developments.
