1981 Nobel Laureate Elias Canetti’s Chapter Title, from “Crowds and Power”—“Islam as a Religion of War”
Elias Canetti (1905-1994) was a German-language novelist, playwright, and non-fiction writer, of Sephardic Jewish descent. Canetti—whose works examined the emotions of crowds, the predicament of individuals at odds with their surrounding society, and the psychopathology of power—was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1981, “for writings marked by a broad outlook, a wealth of ideas and artistic power.”
The faithful and the unbelieving are fated to be separate for ever and to fight each other…[as] a sacred duty and thus, though in a less comprehensive form, the double crowd of the Last Judgment is prefigured in every earthly battle.
