Six parts, 25 minutes each


For 1300 years Islam was the catalyst behind the most widespread and powerful civilization in the world, forming a bridge from classical antiquity to modern times. This six-part series brings alive the Universality of Islam, focusing on the classical Islamic empire and its lingering existence from Africa through the Arabian heartland to Indonesia.

Taking place primarily in the Middle East with an emphasis on Iran, THE TRADITIONAL WORLD OF ISLAM offers the Westerner a magnificent background on the history and evolution of Islam and its contributions to world civilization.
