Interview With Montgomery Watt
An interview from 1999 of the one whom the Muslim press has described as ‘the Last Orientalist.’ The Reverend Professor Montgomery Watt was 90 at the time. His interest in Islam was aroused by an argumentative Muslim back in 1937. His study of Islam appears to have influenced his own interpretation of Christianity. Professor Montgomery Watt is alive in Scotland and is a member of the ecumenical Iona Community. (Alastair McIntosh, Bashir Maan)
