Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

To support the alphabetical entries that comprise the dictionary proper, Renard (theological studies, Saint Louis U.) provides a map showing major cities and regions from Spain to Indonesia, a chronology spanning some 14 centuries of Islamic history, an introduction to the historical approaches to Sufism, a glossary of technical terms, a thematic bibliography, and black-and-white photographs of works of art and architecture as well as a few scenes of Sufi activities. He says Sufism is not some aberrant sect or cult, but is integral to the history of the global faith of Islam, and wherever Muslims are found, Sufis will be among them. Extensive cross-referencing mitigates the lack of an index. Originally published under the title Historical dictionary of Sufism. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
