Chapter Summary

Along with the religion Muhammed gave his Arabs the beginnings of a learning. Before the chapter enters the huge lecture hall of Mekka, the great mosque or Haram, to hear the professors of the theological cycle, it gives some examples of research that is carried on outside that cycle. Mekka has in every century of Islam counted important men of learning among its citizens, and the holy science has for centuries had one of its best workshops; but in the present day for the first time a concurrence of different causes has made of the holy city a unique centre of learning for the whole Muhammedan world.
