In this book, originally published in 1929, Lammens is primarily concerned with the problem of Mohammad s personality and prophetic career one of the central issues of Islamic history. He argues that Mohammad s career must be considered within the context of the urban and mercantile society of seventeenth century Mecca and rejects the idea that Islam was principally the creation of a nomadic environment.
