عنوان مقاله [English]
The emergence of the religion of Islam and its rapid expansion prompted the reaction of Christians who considered Islam a rival religion. The first positions were taken by the clergy of the church. The prophet has been introduced in Christian works as a sickly face, inclined to magic, cunning, lucid, suicidal and Christian imitator. These are the ideas that directly influenced the formation of western imagery of the Holy Prophet. In the present time, despite the progress made in Islamic studies, the mentality of the masses and even many of the scholars of the west is affected by the sediments of these negative ideas. These concepts were identified in two types of individual and social identity of the Prophet .Naturally, variables such as location and posture, political affiliation, and the specialty of the Christian scholars have affected their perceptions of the Prophet. In the present paper, the content analysis method has been used and attempts have been made to identify the relationship between these two variables after the typology of the first Christian scholars until the 14th century and their perceptionof the Individual features of the Prophet. The results show that authors have had similar perception of the Individual features of the Prophetof Islam, in spite of their various occupation, place of birth and the era they lived in.
