Title : Discovering Islam in Devon

Description :
The 'Discovering Islam in Devon' Web page displays texts and illustrations used in the exhibition on the same theme held at Exeter Central Library in 2001. The project was sponsored by the University of Exeter, Exeter City Council and Devon City Council. Exploring themes like: earliest contact; sailors; scholars; diplomats and missionaries; Islamic art and architecture; Islamic literature and its influences; Islamic science and medicine; and Muslims in Devon, this interesting online exhibition charts the growth of Islam in the south-west of England from the moment the region first made contact with the Islamic world to the present day. It should be a useful resource for students of Islam and those interested in the history of religion in Britain.
