CDR-1338: SR Set: Major Religions: Islam

With an apparent major restructuring of the Middle East, Scholars Resource's visual library offers insights into the history of major religions and points out the common roots and origins among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Part III: Islam. The culture of Islam is examined from our western perspective and largely through the art and architecture produced by the various periods throughout its history: Umayyad, Abbasid, Nasrid, Almoravid, Fatimid, Ayyubid, Mamluk, Il Khanid, Seljuk, Timurid, Safavid, Mughal, Ottoman, etc. Of particular interest is the elegant and ubiquitous calligraphy expressing the fundamental faith of Islam from the Qur'an; found not only in manuscripts but forming the very structure of daily life and faith by its decorative presence on mosques, textiles , ceramic tile-work, and everyday objects.
