Reviews

Dr. Ridgeon’s annotated translation and study of three important Persian treatises on spiritual chivalry is a ground-breaking reassessment of all previous research on the subject. Written in a simple and unpretentious style and brimming with insights based on original scholarship, it conveys the tolerant breadth, ecumenical reach and sophistication of the Sufi ethics of spiritual chivalry (futuwwat/ javanmardi) in Islam in a manner accessible to everyone.
