Excerpt

These lectures, delivered in the first quarter of the year 1914 under the auspices of the American Committee for Lectures on the History of Religions, are intended to give a concise account of the main problems connected with the origin, the religious and political growth, and the present state of Mohammedanism. They were written with a view, not to publication in print, but to oral use only. The writer of a book on the same subject would enjoy liberties different from those of a lecturer, and on the other hand he would have other difficulties to overcome. As I had not leisure to recast my lectures in the shape of a book the Committee wished to have them printed as they were, and I submitted to their request, hoping they may be received by the readers with the same kindness which I experienced from my American audiences.
