Patricia Crone, Professor Emerita in the School of Historical Studies, helped to establish the Institute as a recognized center for the pursuit of Islamic culture and history. Crone’s insightful work shed important new light on the critical importance of the Near East—in particular on the cultural, religious, and intellectual history of Islam—in historical studies.
