The book caused a national uproar and Dr. Rahman was forced to leave the country. He does his writing in the relative safety of the Univer- sity of Chicago now. At a time when Western theologians have long since become accustomed to bring- ing a skeptical outlook and sophisticated scholarly methods to bear on the most fundamental religious assumptions, the basic elements of Islam remain, for the most part, beyond intellec- tual challenge. Modernist thinkers function under severe1 handicaps. There have been no anti- religious polemics, nor is t'here any such thing as "higher criticism" of the Koran.

Nevertheless, a traveller through the Islamic world finds that such major intellec- tual centres as Cairo, Karachi and Beirut have a number of modernist scholars who believe that Islam must even- tually confront the intellectual problems that Christians have faced since the Enlightenment. Islamic modernism is still measured in terms of in- dividuals rather than schools, but participants believe their ranks will grow. "We are at the stage that you were in the days of the pilgrim a western-educated Moslem said in an interview in Cairo. As a religion Islam is closer to Judaism than it is to Christianity. It places more emphasis on law than on theology and sees itself more as a way of life than as a set of beliefs. To the devout Moslem the key question is not whether he understands the nature of dei- ty but whether he is following Allah's will as revealed in the Koran. The basic theological framework, developed within four centuries of the Prophet Mohammed's death in A.D. 632, has remained virtually unchallenged. Its basic elements are that Allah is a single, transcendent God, that He is concerned with human affairs, that He spoke to man in the Koran, that the prophet, while not divine, lived the model human life and that the Moslem community is called upon to implement the divine will. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries Islam went through a legal reformation that modified many social practices such as the veil for women, to make them more in keeping with modern at- titudes. No need was seen, though, for a comparable theological reformation to deal with such issues as whether it is possible to believe in divine revelation in a scientific culture. Though this remains the general situation, a few intellectuals and others are beginning to wonder how long it can last. "It's fine to say that Islam doesn't have problems that Christians do like the divinity of Christ, but belief in any kind of revelation presents problems said Aziz Esmail, a professor of religious thought at the University of Nairobi in Kenya. Sadik Al-Zam, a young Marxist in Beirut who is one of the few authors who have questioned what he terms the "mythical" basis of Islam's basic concept of knowledge was inconsistent with a modern world view. "It assumes that all the basic truths have been reveal- ed and that to have knowledge you turn he said in an interview. "This conflicts with the scientific approach." The usual Islamic response to the challenges of science and technology has been that, since they were created by Allah, there can be no conflict with religion. Mian Tufail Mohammed, a leader of an ultraconservative political party in Pakistan. Eamaat-I-lslami. explained it in terms of continuity between scientific and religious knowledge. Jumping festival Reverend David Warner, with flower bouquets in both hands, prepares for an upcoming flower festival by jumping into the past outside St. George's parish church at Jump, England. The small mining community received its name more than a century ago when residents had to cross an unbridged stream to get in and out of the village. An artificial stream will be constructed outside the church for the festival. Traditionalist Catholics offer style SANDERSTEAD, England (AP) By staying the same, Rev. Peter John Morgan has become a "different" style of priest in the present-day Roman Catholic Church. He wears a cassock, a black flat hat, speaks a dead lan- guage, venerates a four-cen- turies-dead pope and defies the wishes of Pope Paul. In a changing world, Father Morgan refuses to change. Re- jecting the modernized liturgy and defying Vatican direc- tives to put it in local languages, he sticks to the traditional mass in Latin. He has counterparts scattered around the world, traditionalists who by not changing have become rebels in a church that changed. The traditionalists are will- ing to spend time, energy and money .for their cause. And Greek archbishop resigns Israel post TEL AVIV (Reuten Greek Catholic Archbishop Joseph Raya left here today on his way to Canada after resigning his post as head of the church in northern Israel and southern Lebanon in a protest over its top leadership. He told reporters he was going back to a monastery in Can- ada "for a period of solitude, prayer and to write a book." He did not say where the monastery is, other than "far. far away in the woods." Archbishop Raya said, "I resigned in protest against the il- legal interference in the affairs of my community by the patri- arch (Maximus V) and other high ecclesiastical church offi- cials and the Vatican." He said his belief that Jerusalem should remain united under Israeli sovereignty was one difference between him and the patriarch in Beirut and between him and the Vatican. He said he plans to lecture at Canadian and American univer- sities on his experiences here as leader of the Greek Catholic community, which numbers more than 20.000 in Israel. there are thousands who don't like the new ways. Supporters of Father Morgan provide him with a house on the outskirts of London and pay him a salary with expenses for travelling all over southern England to say the old mass. To publicize their cam- paign, they've formed-a socie- ty with a full-time secretary, and advertise on a poster that "the traditional Roman Catholic mass is widely available again." Father Morgan, English- born, looks older than his 34 years. He speaks English, French. Italian and Latin. GETS EQUAL FOOTING BRUSSELS (AFP) The Moslem religion was recognized officially within Belgium Friday on an equal footing with Christianity and Judaism. Under a law publish- ed in the official Gazette, the Belgian state will pay the salaries of Islamic prayer leaders and provincial ad- ministrations will pay for the upkeep of mosques. Belgium has a Moslem community of about 100.000. Boss' proposes change TORONTO Most Rev. James Augustus Walton, elected last week as metro- politan of Ontario, wasted lit- tle time outlining proposed changes for his role as head of one of four Anglican Church of Canada ecclesiastical provinces Known Praying dreds Ojibwa as "Little Chief Boss" to hun- of Cree, and Chippewyan peoples in his northern diocese of Moosonee, Archbishop Walton suc- ceeded Most Rev. William L, Wnghl, who retired this year at the age of 70 after holding the position for 19 years "This is an office I didn't Archbishop Watton told 111 clergy and laymen wt-o rlo 1 rr I'IT tli ballot "but I will attempt to carry this honor to the best of my ability. "I'm an activist but not a radical. I'm just a typical Anglican who's so middle-of- the-road he can't be missed. Archbishop Watton. scrrated in 1963. was expected to become metropolitan because of seniority greater lhan thai of the five other eligible bishops. "The first change in the role of metropolitan was in- stigated Wednesday said the archbishop "The province's House of Bishops adopled a motion to create a six-year term for the position with the holder being forced lo call an election in his sixth year "There will be the option of a second six-year term if re- elected, but one person will no longer be able lo remain metropolitan for more than 12 years Previously. the metropolitan was appointed retirement and any be approved by the provincial synod. The archbishop said he also hopes to establish a commis- sion lo investigate provincial synods and their roles which are lied directly lo that of the metropolitan "I can see provincial synods playing a greater role in the Church." The 58-year-old nalive of Southampton, Onl is married with one son and two daughters He said seniority was needed because the person next in line for the position. Rl. Rev. William Robinson of Ottawa, had been a Bishop only three years. Archbishop Walton, a resi- dent of the mining community of Schumacher, is m charge of a area slretching through northern Ontario and central Quebec to Hudson Bay.
