Muhammad and Islam

The course deals with the life of Muhammad and his career as a religious, political and military leader (570-632). It examines the creation and the evolution of the first Islamic community, firstly in Mecca and later in Medina. Different aspects of pre-Islamic Arab society (religion, culture, economy, social stratification, racial organisation and others.) are analysed, as well as how they affected Islam and, in their turn, how they were affected by the new religion
The course aims to provide the students with the necessary knowledge that will make them capable to fully understand the emergence and the historical development of Islam, as well as the personality and the carreer of Muhammad.
