Creating people's geographies
An interesting UK-based ITV documentary narrated by Melvin Bragg about how Jesus is viewed in Islam. Most of us know Jesus is viewed as an important prophet in Islam rather than the Son of God as he is in Christianity; other than this difference in the recognition of divinity, this documentary reveals other fascinating facts about how Jesus and other prominent biblical figures such as Mary are viewed by Muslims. The Qur’an does affirm the Immaculate Conception, for example, and there has been a major Iranian film on Mary’s life.
Directed and produced by Irshad Ashraf. R/T: 45mins (disregard the eye-rollingly sensationalist first 45 seconds—otherwise its a great bridge-builder).
