1500  words.  This  word  limit  includes  citations  of  your  sources  [as  footnotes]  but  excludes  your   bibliography.For  your  first  assignment  I  require  you  to  write  an  essay  conducting  a  close  analysis  of  al-­‐Tabari’s   accounts  of  the  first  revelations  made  to  the  Prophet  Muhammad  (Biographies  of  Muhammad:  extracts   from  The  History  of  al-­‐Tabari  in  your  courseware).  Given  that  al-­‐Tabari  supplies  several  different  and  at   times  contradictory  accounts,  what  is  the  over-­‐arching  message  that  he  seeks  to  convey  to  his  reader?   While  this  assignment  is  primarily  a  text  analysis,  you  may  find  it  useful  to  consult  secondary  works  (and   maybe  other  primary  sources)  on  the  topic,  including  on  al-­‐Tabari,  his  work  and  his  historical  context.  Your  work  will  be  assessed  for  the  quality  of  your  arguments,  the  clarity  and  effectiveness  of  your   writing,  and  your  use  of  sources.
