(p.1) Introduction
Victorian Muslim

This introduction explains the resurgence of scholarly and public interest in the Muslim convert, Abdullah Quilliam, after some seventy years of near total neglect following his death in 1932. It situates the current spotlight on Quilliam and the revival of his reputation amongst Muslims and non-Muslims in the context of post-9/11 interest in the history of Islam in Britain and the West. This introduction then points to the core themes of the book and the key arguments that are addressed in the subsequent chapters. It suggests that Quilliam’s life, work and legacy as a pioneering religious leader are set to continue to inspire and provoke debate through the twenty-first century.
