Islam: Empire of Faith

Added by on 15/02/2019

This documentary redresses the balance by showing the riches of Islamic culture and the vital role played by Islam in preserving and building upon ancient wisdom from East and West at a time when most of Europe was stumbling through the Dark Ages.

Narrated by Sir Ben Kingsley, this documentary re-creates the spectacular sweep of Islamic power and faith during its first 1,000 years, from Muhammad’s birth to the Ottoman Empire under Suleyman the Magnificent. Evocative re-enactments and art, artifacts, and architecture combine with scholarly interviews to recount the rise and glory of Islamic civilization.

The demonization of Islam by the West has a long history, stretching back to the First Crusade at the end of the 11th century.
