About the Project

Project term: April, 2022–March, 2025

In Southeast Asian islands, Islamization very slowly proceeded since the end of the 13th Century. In this research, we regard the 14-17th Century, the period in that this region was affected by Persian and Indian literature, as “the early period of Islamization” of Southeast Asia, and elucidate how Southeast Asian people understood and accepted Islam as a new religious system mainly by analyses of literature written in Southeast Asian languages (Acehnese, Malay, Javanese, Cham, etc.). We will also utilize the outcomes of these analyses for the comparisons of the period with the history from the 18th Century as “the latter period of Islamization” affected by the Arab.
