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.

Part 1 recounts the history of the religion of Islam, from its beginning in 622 A.D. as a small desert sect led by the prophet Muhammad, to its zenith hundreds of years later as an intellectual and artistic empire. Participants are invited to stay after the film for a short discussion.  Not Rated (60 min.) Part 1 will also be shown on Friday, August 18 @ 2:00 pm. Parts 2 and 3 will be shown separately.
