Summary "A Prophet Has Appeared will be the first anthology of the most significant sources for understanding the rise of Islam. This book will provide instructors with a collection of carefully selected, introduced, and annotated materials from contemporary non-Islamic records that can be set alongside of the Qur'an and later Islamic materials. Written in many languages-not just Greek and Latin, but Syriac, Georgian, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopic, Hebrew, and Arabic-these texts span the extent of early medieval Christendom, reaching from England and Spain in the west to Egypt and Iran in the east. Ideal for the classroom and the personal library, this book will have a major, sustained impact on the fields in which we publish"-- Provided by publisher.
