They describe the many routes that Muslims had to other continents and cities so that trade and religion could unite the vast empire as said in Muslim Trade Networks. The Muslim trade routes made up a true “network” because it was connected over vast amounts of land and conquests. “Under the Abbasids, the center of the Moslem world was the city of Baghdad…not chosen by inadvertence…” says Document A.
An essential distinction between the cultures of Athens and Jerusalem could be in how they attained knowledge. Human reason was the bases of Athenian culture and Faith was the essence of Jerusalem’s culture.
