(LARGE PRINT EDITION) 1891. Veteran scholar Sir William Muir's
history of the Caliphate. A Caliph is the spiritual head and
temporal ruler of the Islamic state. In principle, Islam is
theocratic: when Muhammad the Prophet died, a caliph (successor)
was chosen to rule in his place. The caliph had temporal and
spiritual authority but was not permitted prophetic power; this was
reserved for Muhammad. The caliph could not, therefore, exercise
authority in matters of religious doctrine. See other titles by
this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
