Riassunto: This volume presents the seminal treatise of the important Spanish Muslim mystic, Ibn al-'Arab?, on Islamic sainthood "The Book of the Fabulous Gryphon," In highly allusive, symbolic language, the Shaykh al-Akbar reveals his manifesto of the revolutionary significance of sainthood in the person of its timely epitome, the Seal of the saints. The first part of the book consists of a critical introduction dealing with the biographical, historical and bibliographical background to the "Fabulous Gryphon," along with a thorough examination of its concepts, themes and structure. The complete, annotated translation of the "Gryphon" is followed by further original translations of related texts by Ibn al-'Arab?. Apart from the Fus's al-?ikam, no comparable treatise by this leading figure of Islamic spirituality has ever been presented in its entirety in any western language.
L'autore: Gerald T. Elmore, Ph.D. (1995) in Arabic-Islamic Studies, Yale University, is a postdoctoral research fellow at Yale, where he is engaged in an in-depth study of the works and teachings of Ibn al- Arab . His articles have appeared regularly in academic journals since 1996."
