This three-part PBS series tells the spectacular story of the great sweep of Islamic power and faith during its first 1,000 years -- from the birth of the prophet Muhammad to the peak of the Ottoman Empire under the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent.

Parts 2 & 3 recount early Islam’s thirst for knowledge; the beginning of the Crusades; and the history of the Ottoman Empire and its ambitious sultans through the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent. Participants are invited to stay after the film for a short discussion. Not Rated (105 min.).
