More than 4 weeks availability


In this book, originally published in 1929, Lammens is primarily concerned with the problem of Mohammad's personality and prophetic career - one of the central issues of Islamic history. He argues that Mohammad's career must be considered within the context of the urban and mercantile society of seventeenth century Mecca and rejects the idea that Islam was principally the creation of a nomadic environment.
