      The historiography of early Islam is the study of how various historians have treated the events of the first two centuries of Islamic history.. Western academic historians have come to believe that the traditional Islamic version of those events is problematic. The Islamic sources are from a period dating between and years after the events being referred to had taken place.   In light of recent developments in the field, this Roundtable on Islamic Legal History and Historiography is designed to take stock of the state of the field. We invited leading and emerging scholars of Islamic law and history to weigh in on their approaches to questions of history and historiography, method and meaning in Islamic legal history. The historiography of the Crusades has been subject to competing and evolving interpretations from the First Crusade in until the present day. Originally intended as a way to re-direct Western military efforts from fighting other Christians and into the conquest and retention of the Holy Land, they were later used in other areas of interest to the Catholic Church. Fatimid history is thus preserved and commemorated largely in the inter-religious context of Mamluk historiography (Sunni authors looking back at a hugely important Shi‘i past) and these later works offer a variety of views on Fatimid legitimacy: many, like Ibn al-Furāt, presented this history without a discernible ‘sectarian’ lens.
