Muslims constitute a religious minority in the Philippines, where Christians constitute an overwhelming majority. The prevailing narrative describes their history in terms of a series of battles against foreigners. This study looks at their history in a new light, focusing on Islamic scholars from Mindanao.Drawing on manuscripts they wrote, it demonstrates that they actively participated in intellectual interactions with fellow Muslims in the Malay world, and contributed to the enrichment of intellectual and cultural life in their homeland and the Malay world.Link to the article
