Unlike Moses or Jesus, Muhammad is said to have been born in the full light of history. The earliest extant biography of the Prophet, the Life of Muhammad by Ibn Hisham (d. 833), contains a full account of the Prophet's career, from his birth ca. 570 to his death in 632. In this seminar, we will read the Life of Muhammad and analyze selected episodes from a critical historical perspective.
