Abstract

This collection brings together the work of eighteen scholars, all specialists in medieval sufism. Written in French, English and Arabic, the articles focus on Egypt of the Mamluk period (c. 1250-1517). With approaches varying from the historical to the tophographical, from the poetic to the theological, this volume offers a wealth of insight into the world of the medieval Muslim mystic. Drawing on the latest textual and field research available, together these scholars provide a truly interdisciplinary perspective-one that seeks to reflect the cultural and intellectual depths of medieval Egyptian Sufism.
