Islam and other religions: How many scriptures? | The Economist


Many historians would agree that the advent of Islam in the seventh Christian century was at least tactically welcomed by Christian groups whose beliefs about Jesus and the Holy Trinity were at odds, albeit only slightly, with the formulas that had been carefully elaborated by the church’s great councils.

On the other hand, that’s not a very encouraging message for people whose ideas about Christ and the Trinity do coincide with “Byzantine Christian” thinking—in other words, most of today’s traditional Christian churches.
