about this item

Created for scholars of Arabic and Ottoman history, this book is a catalog of all the Arabic-language manuscripts housed in the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. It is the most comprehensive collection of Arabic manuscripts in Hungary. This is a bibliographic catalog rather than an anthology of the manuscripts' contents. The text is in English and Arabic; color photoreproductions of some text pages are included. Highlights of the collection include Mamluk-era materials, a significant number of Ottoman manuscripts, and other Turkish and Persian texts. The collection as a whole gives a picture of the curriculum of classical Islamic education. Materials include Quran, Hadith, Koranic Sciences, Theology, Jurisprudence, Mystic texts (Sufi texts, prayer books, Falnama, 'Ilm al-raml), History, Literature, Language Sciences, Logic, and miscellaneous texts including an encyclopedia and texts on horsemanship and mathematics.
