Synopsis

This work represents a brilliant corpus of Islamic manuscripts devoted to the theological, philosophical and historical traditions of the Fatimid, post-Fatimid Yemeni as well as Indian-Ismaili literature. The catalogue, with its 179 annotated entries which examine the literary and doctrinal aspects of these manuscripts, features incipits in Arabic for each entry and is supported by indices in both Arabic and Latin scripts. The work is fully illustrated and enriched by a comprehensive contextualising introduction. It will prove an invaluable tool for scholars and researchers interested in the study of key-texts from the early Islamic period.

Delia Cortese is Lecturer in Religious and Islamic Studies at Middlesex University and is affiliated to The Institute of Ismaili Studies. She obtained her doctorate in Islamic Studies at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies and was subsequently awarded a post-doctoral research fellowship by the Istituto Universitario Orientale in Naples.
