The early development of Mohammedanism; by D. S. Margoliouth ()

The early development of Mohammedanism


The following lectures were delivered in the months of May and June 1913, in the University of London, at the request of the Hibbert Trustees, to whom the writer wishes at the outset to express his cordial thanks, both for selecting the subject of Mohammed-anism and committing the treatment of it to him. Professor Goldziher in his LiCctures on Islam^ has provided guidance for all who wish to handle this theme; the topic is chosen by the present writer might be called " the supplementing of the Koran," i.e. the process whereby the extempore, or indeed ex momento, utterances threw together in that volume were worked into a fabric which has marvelously resisted the ravages of time.
