"Behind the clamorous headlines of militant and political Islam lies the more serene and cultivated form that is traditional Islam, which now is increasingly under threat from both fundamentalists and modern secularists. Author Jean-Louis Michon unveils this lesser-known dimension of Islam while capturing the essence and beauty of this often misinterpreted religion, which has over 1.5 billion adherents (about a quarter of the world's population)." "Illustrated with over 270 color photographs, Introduction to Traditional Islam is divided into four parts: 1: the foundations of Islam, which highlights the pillars of the faith as well as the traditional Islamic city and its holistic vision of life; 2: the message of Islamic art; 3: music and spirituality; and 4: the way of Sufism, the inward or mystical dimension of Islam."--BOOK JACKET.
