The works gathered in this book express three aspects of an open-minded Islam throughout its history: an open interest in other religions, a generous interchange of artistic designs and a deep interest in scientific enquiry from whatever source. Examples of the absorption of artistic motifs, issuing from Islamic art and vice versa from neighbouring cultures, remain endless. It reminds readers that Islamic generosity has prevailed in many other aspects of intellectual, religious and daily lives of a multitude of peoples over many centuries.
