Islamic Studies is a historically developed discipline that, here in Marburg, is multi-disciplinary thanks to the questions it asks and its methodological diversity. It has links to historical philological research and to religious, cultural and socio-scientific disciplines. We focus primarily on the region of the Near and Middle East and include Islamic societies. This means that we research and teach a time span stretching from the beginnings of Islam in the seventh century up until the present day.
