Episode 88: Background on Islam with Scott Rank
Description: A new powerful force is entering the history of the Papacy and Christian Church during the 7th century. Islam will impact every facet of Christianity for centuries to come. The early 7th century is when Islam and the Arab armies hit the scene and everything will be different afterwards. I thought it would be a good idea to do an episode with some background and context of the Arabs and where the idea of Islam came from. We’ve been doing these quick context episodes. I’ve enjoyed doing them and I hope they help build background for upcoming and even past episodes. In order to help us develop this background and context for the rise of Islam, I’ve brought in a scholar on the Ottoman Empire and Islam, Professor Scott Rank of the History Unplugged Podcast.
