Religion and Culture in Classical Islam

George Makdisi

Hardback (Printed to Order)
This biography of the Muslim scholastic and humanist Ibn 'Aqil (A.H. 431-513/ A.D. 1040-1119) sheds light on one of the most important periods of classical Islam, one which has had a significant impact on religious and intellectual culture in the Christian Latin West.


Professor Makdisi's distinguished reputation in his field will already be known.With this book on Ibn 'Aqil he has done it again. This will be thedefinitive work on the subject for the next fifty years.... a remarkabletext of deep erudition and sweeping range.
