EBSCO and ATLA Introduce Islam in the Modern World, 1804-1913

~ The Special Segment of the ATLA Historical Monographs Collection Covers Wide Range of Islamic Content from the 19th and 20th Centuries ~

IPSWICH, Mass. — June 16, 2014EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and the American Theological Library Association (ATLA) have created a special segment of the ATLA Historical Monographs Collection. Islam in the Modern World, 1804-1913 covers the beliefs, practices, theology, spirituality and history of Islam in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Islam in the Modern World, 1804-1913 contains 150 titles, 172 volumes and more than 52,000 pages. The content includes biographies of the prophet Muhammad; works comparing Christianity and Islam’s key theological and philosophical texts, including the Quran; relevant mystical and spiritual works; and texts surveying the history of Islam.

Curated by an Islamic Studies expert, the titles were published during a time of great turmoil and upheaval in the Islamic world due to the decline of central authority and increased foreign involvement in the Ottoman Empire and Qajar Iran, the two reigning dynasties of the Islamic world at the time. The collection covers a wide range of subjects, including Polemic/Mission/Interreligious Activity; Doctrine/Theology/Philosophy/Mysticism; Islam in Practice; and History. Titles in English, French and German provide various views and schools of thought in the history in Islamic studies in Western language scholarship.
