Chapter 11 then turns to how religious identity and rivalry affected developments in the Middle East from a comparative perspective. As the chapter documents, while religious pluralism within Christianity accompanied European political fragmentation and competition and it preceded the run up to the continent’s economic takeoff, inter-faith differences were an important factor in the various reactions of the Islamic world to Europe’s economic rise. The discussions culminate with a review of the social, political and institutional manifestations of those reactions as potentially being an important drag for Middle Eastern economic growth and development until recently.
