Islam and Us

Franco Cardini


What does it mean today to be 'Christian' or 'Muslim'? Is an understanding between these two denominations and people possible, or at least a comparison based around dialogue rather than on reciprocal misunderstanding? The history of the relationship between Islam and the West, along with knowledge of the most important aspects of Muslim civilisation, can help us to better understand both our present and our future.
