From the mid-nineteenth through twentieth centuries, Islamic intellectual history has experienced important paradigmatic shifts. These transformations were not only expressed in the rise of political Islamic thought or secular ideologies like nationalism, which in one way or another were combined with Islamic religious justification, but it was also in the field of theology that modern epistemes have been incorporated and adapted to older notions of Islamic religious traditions. In many ways, these developments were the results of interactions within transnational intellectual milieus, in which Muslim thinkers actively participated. This chapter will exemplify these processes (a) by examining the development of the concept and notion of history, and more specifically “Islamic history,” in the texts of modern Islamic religious thinkers, as well as (b) by contextualizing these texts within the transnational discursive spaces in which they emerged, and thus within the broader trends of modern global intellectual history.

In: Dynamics of Islam in the Modern World
Dynamics of Islam in the Modern World scrutinizes and analyzes Islam in context. It posits Muslims not as independent and autonomous, but as relational and interactive agents of change and continuity who interplay with Islamic(ate) sources of self and society as well as with resources from other traditions. Representing multiple disciplinary approaches, the contributors to this volume discuss a broad range of issues, such as secularization, colonialism, globalization, radicalism, human rights, migration, hermeneutics, mysticism, religious normativity and pluralism, while paying special attention to three geographical settings of South Asia, the Middle East and Euro-America.
