Reading Classical Islamic Texts (in Arabic): Ibn Taymiyya (TH-693)

This high level course offers an in-depth exploration of the theological and spiritual writings of one of the most fascinating—and controversial—thinkers of classical lslam: the Mamlûk mufti and theologian Taqî al-Dîn Ibn Taymiyya (d. 728/1328). Key texts will be read in the original Arabic, translated orally, explained grammatically, commented on ideologically, and discussed, by the students as well as by the professor. A good knowledge of Classical Arabic is highly recommended to maximize the learning in this course. Bibliographical references will be provided.
