about this item

Most of the 26 papers (11 in French) are from an international conference in Paris during November and December 2012 on the Arab-Islamic notion of adab which covers a range of meanings, including good behavior, knowledge of manners, etiquette, rules, belles-lettres, and literature. This first of three conferences in a five-year research project focused on adab in Sufi thought and practice, and the proceedings cover the formation and formulations of Sufi adab; adab as ethics: norm and transgression within the three monotheisms; genres of Sufi adab: manuals, hagiographies, and adab as literature; and Sufi abad and modernity.
