Islam started to spread in Ossetia in the 14th and 15th centuries. According to sources, mostly high noble families of Ossetian society received Muslim religion and peasants remained into the Christian faith.
Although there are no official censuses, estimates say that about 0.5% of the population of South Ossetia are Muslims. Officials also suspect that Russia's military and political actions will likely cause this percentage to increase.[unreliable source?]
