  community member   < less Abraham_Lilien

Sarah Stroumsa, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
In contemporary parlance, the term "Abrahamic religions" serves to indicate the common ground of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The designation of these three religions as "Abrahamic" is used as a shorthand for their supposed common ancestry as well as for their assumed shared religious principles and values. Since its very purpose is to highlight the commonality of the three religions, the term is always used in the plural. For medieval thinkers in the Islamicate world, however, the Abrahamic model of religion was radically different from the contemporary one.
