Seminar One:The World Muhammad Made


The birth and conquests of Islam changed everything for Jews. We shall be looking at the following frameworks: the new geographical and political world, legal and social changes, demographic growth and linguistic transformation in the emerging Arab world and the development of networks that created the conditions for a major Jewish cultural re-birth.
