by Morris, James

Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9781860647819, 1860647812

This key source for pre-Fatimid Ismaili history includes a fully annotated translation and Arabic critical edition of one of the earliest surviving Ismaili Shi'i writings, Kitab al-'Alim wa'l-ghulam by the Yemeni author Ja'far Ibn Mansur al-Yaman. The book is unique because it provides the most elaborate example available of the narrated dramatic dialogues form in Arabic literature. It also vividly illustrates the processes by which early esoteric Shi'i ideas and institutions eventually contributed to the evolution of more familiar forms of Sufism in the Islamic West.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
