The main reason behind the change in the modern period sirah literature is the impact of the post-renaissance experiment of the West on the sirah literature, beginning from the mid-19th century. In order to correctly understand the change in the sirah literature, it is necessary to explain the chance which occurred in the West and how this change transformed the understanding of religion and prophecy. In this context, the discussion on the historical Jesus comes to the fore. When examined, it can be seen that there are some resemblances between the arguments and the findings of the historical Jesus quest and the modern period sirah literature.
