1998 video re-release: Since 600AD Islam has been a widespread and powerful civilization forming a bridge from classical antiquity to modern Times. THE TRADITIONAL WORLD OF ISLAM brings to life many aspects of the Islamic world. The six programs are self-contained but mutually complementary. All are photographic pageants of extraordinary beauty. Focusing on the classic Islamic empire and the realm of its lingering existence from Africa through the Arabian heartland to Indonesia, it stresses the universality of Islam, drawing attention to the ethnic diversity of those participating in the haj. The majority of scenes are from the semi-arid Middle East, especially Iran, of Islam in stasis, not evolution. The narration includes quotations from the Koran, Hadith, lbn Khaldun, and various classical poets. Suffused with Sufi mysticism, this series creates a magnificent background for western appreciation of Islam and its contributions to world civilization.
