"Fez: City of Islam ... conveys a profound understanding of the sacred roots that nourish Islamic culture and civilisation. As a young man in the 1930s, Burckhardt spent some years in Morocco where he became acquainted with several remarkable representatives of the spiritual heritage of the Maghrib. Although he committed much of this experience to writing, it was not until the 1950s that these writings were developed into a book. In Fez: City of Islam, Burckhardt writes of the history of a people and their religiona history that was often violent, often heroic and sometimes holy. The book relates the teachings, parables and miracles of the saints of many centuries and demonstrates not only the arts and crafts of Islamic civilisation, but also its sciences and administrative skills. Burckhardt's unique black and white photographs from the 1930s are included."

The foundations of Christian art : illustrated by Titus Burckhardt( Book )

"The art historian and philosopher of religion, Titus Burckhardt (1908-1984), was one of the 20th century's most renowned experts on sacred art. The reader is drawn into a pilgrimage through the history of Christian art to architecture, iconography, and illumination; always returning to the fundamental genius of Christianity. Through a luminous interplay of Burckhardt's text, this book becomes a work of art in itself, inviting the reader to "taste and see" the glories of the artistic and spiritual heritage of Christianity."--

Ideals and realities of Islam by Seyyed Hossein Nasr( Book )

5 editions published between 1975 and 2001 in English and French and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book contains six lectures out of a series of fifteen public lectures delivered by Dr. Nasr during the time he held the chair of Aga Khan Professor of Islamic Studies in the American University of Beirut (1964-65). These public lectures concern the religion of Islam and the diverse aspects of the civilization it produced. "Ideals and Realities of Islam" has been primarily written for those Western readers who are interested in Islam. The book comprises six chapters dealing with Islam and discussing precisely the Qur'an, the Prophet, the Sharfah or Divine Law, the Tariqah or Sufism, and Sunnism and Shi'ism. The author has, in his scholarly manner, elucidated the major aspects of the Islamic tradition and has made frequent comparisons with other religions, notably with Christianity, which meets Islam in Lebanon. In these essays, Professor Nasr has presented what is most universal in Islam and underlies the beliefs of all the orthodox branches of the tradition. -- Abridged from (Oct. 8, 2014)
