Memoirs of a mission : the Ismaili scholar, statesman and poet al-Muʼayyad fil̓-Dīn al-Shīrāzī by Verena Klemm( )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Al-Mu'ayyad fi'l-Din al-Shirazi (d. 470/1087) was an outstanding Ismaili scholar of Persian origin. He excelled as a missionary-agent (da'i), statesman and poet. Towards the end of his long and active life, al-Mu'ayyad became the head of the Ismaili mission (da'wa) - the chief da'i - in the time of the Fatimid Caliph-Imam al-Mustansir in Cairo." "Based on his memoirs, Sirat al-Mu'ayyad fi'l-Din, this work provides an insight into the remarkable life and achievements of al-Mu'ayyad through important stages of his career. Written in a masterful Arabic literary style and rhetoric, the Sira describes in detail his daring attempt to win over the Buyid rulers of western Iran to the Fatimid cause; his flight to Cairo where his ambitions to be near the Imam are initially frustrated by powerful court officials; and finally, his expedition to Syria and Iraq as a Fatimid plenipotentiary to forge an alliance of local rulers against the Saljuq Turks invading the central Islamic lands from the East." "Through a close analysis of the Sira, the author of this book demonstrates that, in addition to being a personal account of a highly dedicated Fatimid da'i, this is a rich historical source on the organisation and function of the Ismaili mission. It is also an extensive and valuable source for Islamic history in the 5th/11th century, dealing with crucial events in the struggle between the Fatimids, Abbasids, Buyids and Saljuqs for political and military supremacy in the Muslim world. Thus, al-Mu'ayyad's memoirs serve as a unique magnifying glass concentrating the international political dynamics of the age in the narrative of one life and destiny."--Jacket

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Multiple languages and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects papers from the 24th Congress of the Union Européenne des Arabisants et Islamisants (UEAI) in 2008 at the University of Leipzig. Original research and new approaches illustrate its theme of Sources and Approaches across Disciplines in Near Eastern Studies. The studies span Muslim culture, civilizations, and intellectual thought in the medieval and modern periods. The contributions demonstrate the benefits of following methodological and interdisciplinary approaches that draw upon literary criticism, sociology and anthropology in the field of among others Qur'anic studies, religion, philosophy and mysticism. The volume also highlights the commonalities and overlaps that exist between these different branches and fosters cooperative study across a wide cultural, historical, and sociological milieu. Rather than following an isolated approach to their areas of study, academics in different fields of Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies benefited from one another's methodologies, and collectively built a wide body of knowledge

Refaiya 1853 : Buchkultur in Damaskus by Verena Klemm( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von Damaskus nach Leipzig, vom Magazin ins Internet: In den letzten Jahren wurde die Damaszener Familienbibliothek 'Refaiya' in einem gemeinsamen Projekt des Orientalischen Instituts und der Universitätsbibliothek erfasst, erforscht und digital präsentiert. Als virtuelle Handschriftenbibliothek steht sie nun Lesern aus aller Welt offen. Ein direktes Tor zu ihr bietet diese Ausstellung. Wie konnte dem Leipziger Arabist Heinrich Leberecht Fleischer und seinem Schüler Johann Gottfried Wetzstein der blitzschnelle Handschriftenkauf von 1853 gelingen? Wer besaß und wer las die Bücher vormals? Was für Spuren haben diese Menschen darin hinterlassen und was erzählen sie uns über die Geschichte der Bibliothek und ihr kulturelles Umfeld? Welche ökonomischen Verflechtungen verbanden die Handschriften schon lange vor ihrem Kauf mit Europa? In der Ausstellung kommen die Handschriften der Refaiya als überlebende Zeugen einer alten Buchkultur selbst zu Wort. 0Exhibition: Bibliotheca Albertina, Leipzig, Germany (19.4.-25.8.2013)
