ABSTRACT
The article discusses the position of Christians in the age of Islamic Enlightenment. It mentions that Islamic Enlightenment was not simply a convenient cargo delivering Greek learning to the West but a profound intercultural event wherein the Christian world saw itself reflected in self-revealing ways. It also emphasizes how Islam tenaciously viewed Christians as a corrupted religion whose doctrines are invalid.
