Abstract

 

“LÂ ILLÂHA ILLA-LLÂH”: THE ISLAM OF ISABELLE EBERHARDT AND RELIGIOUS TRANSFORMATIONS

The present paper focuses on the religious quest of Isabelle Eberhardt (1877–1904), a French-language writer and traveller of Russian origins. Influenced by her atheistic education and Romantic writings rebelling against the Christian God, she looks for faith in Islam. This study explains the reasons why she adopted the Muslim religion, shows how she describes Islam and, finally, depicts her doubts and the changes she introduced to the religion to be able to accept it. Her writings are an interesting testimony of religious transformations of her times, but may also be in line with the contemporary post-secular thought.
