What is Richard Muller's view of Islam

Christianity and Islam as political religions

The volume examines important stages in the change in political-religious ideas in Christianity and Islam as ideal adaptations to the constantly changing social framework or as attempts to shape the political on the basis of theological premises. The book thus makes a key contribution to understanding the genuinely political dimension of religions, regardless of observable processes of secularization and possible institutional divisions between state and church. The collected essays explore conceptual and methodological access to the subject area and reveal the political-religious change in Christianity and Islam partly in individual case analyzes, partly from a comparative perspective.
