Ulrika Mårtensson researches early Islamic history and historiography, focusing on how religious symbols express social contract theories and legal-economic issues. She is also doing research on the Qur'an, employing both historical and exegetical-legal perspectives and comparing early Islamic approaches to the Qur'an with contemporary research. Other research interests concern Islam as it is developing in the institutional contexts and public spheres of the Nordic welfare states; and 'political Islam'.


The chapter sums up the results from chapters 4–12, identifying and analysing major agreements and differences in scholars’ definitions of the concepts, and discussing what kinds of conceptual patterns and linkages that emerge from this exercise. Subsequently, these results are compared with state-of-the-art as described in Ch. 2, and major correspondences and divergences between the Islamic and the academic studies are identified and analysed.
