and the Homeland in the Islamic and Christian Thoughts in
the Middle Ages
by Dr. Ulrich Haarmann
|April 1989 (Arabic, Pp. 18)|
A comparative reading of the understanding of the "nation" and the "homeland" in Christian Germany and Europe and the Islamic Arab East is the subject of this lecture. A further element concentrates on the terms used at this time, taken from the Latin and the ancient Egyptian: how they were explained by the intellectuals from the two areas, and the differences and similarities in the expressions and meanings. In bringing the issue up to the present, the lecturer discusses the modern national movements in Europe and the Arab world and their religious elements.
