  Encyclopedia of Islam   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The Encyclopedia of Islam (EI) is a scholarly encyclopedia covering all aspects of Islamic civilization and history.
An abridged version was published in 1953 as the Shorter Encyclopedia of Islam (SEI) and covers mainly law and religion.
Besides a great expansion in content, the second edition of EI differs from the first mainly in incorporating the work of scholars of Muslim and Middle Eastern background: :''EI''¹ and SEI were produced almost entirely by European scholars, and they represent a specifically European interpretation of Islamic civilization.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Islam (Concept)
Islam, an Arabic word which, since Mohammed's time, has acquired a religious and technical significance denoting the religion of Mohammed and of the Koran, just as Christianity denotes that of Jesus and of the Gospels, or Judaism that of Moses, the Prophets, and of the Old Testament.
In its fourth form (aslama), the infinitive of which is islam, it acquires the sense of "to resign", "to submit oneself" or "to surrender".
Hence the Mohammedan theological axiom "Islam is with the tongue, and Iman is with the heart." According to the Hanafites (another of the four above-mentioned schools), however, no distinction is to be made between the two terms, as Iman, according to them, is essentially included in Islam.
