What would Ron choose from the Islamic basket? Notes on Scientology's construction of Islam

Bigliardi, Stefano LU (2015) In Temenos 51(1). p.95-121
Abstract

Two theological claims characterizing Scientology are its continuity with older religions, and its support for religious freedom and pluralism. This article, focusing on two articles that appeared in the magazine Advance! in the 1970s as well as other pieces authored by L. R. Hubbard, analyses Scientology's narrative about Islam following Jan Hjärpe's 'basket theory'.
