A slightly different view of Islam: we explore the controversial origins of Islam and its first two centuries of development. Next, we consider the intellectual and political conditions that generated the early Islamic world's intense interest in science. Finally we look at the surprising and profound influence early Islam had on Western Christianity, science, and culture.
