The final episode states that Suleiman died in 1561. Since he ordered what is now known as the (Great) Siege of Malta in 1565, this is clearly wrong. His generally accepted date of death is 1566. See more »
This is a very good documentary and shows the more fair image of Islam not commonly seen in the West, of a religion that was flourished in culture, science, and art. It also shows its more violent parts in history. Nevertheless, I find that it ends all too abruptly and it fails to comment on any contemporary issues about Islam, which I guess would have made this documentary too long.
If you are interested in Islam, find yourself a copy of this and watch as it is entertaining and informative.
Especially at this time, it is necessary for Western audiences to learn more about Islam.
