The Republic of Arabic Letters: Islam and the European Enlightenment

Author(s): Alexander Bevilacqua

Culture & Ideas

Alexander Bevilacqua shows that the Enlightenment effort to learn about Islam and its religious and intellectual traditions issued not from a secular agenda but from the scholarly commitments of a pioneering group of Catholic and Protestant Christians who cast aside inherited views and bequeathed a new understanding of Islam to the modern West.
