Monographs in Arabic and Islamic Studies
This series seeks to provide a forum for the publication of research-based monographs in the field of Arabic and Islamic Studies. Principally covering the early and medieval historical periods, and encompassing a range of disciplinary perspectives and approaches, it will seek to promote academic scholarship devoted to the classical Islamic sciences, including traditions of learning such as Qur’anic exegesis, hermeneutics, law, theology, linguistic thought, Sufism, the Hadith and studies on the medieval genres of Arabic biography and history. Additionally, with the objective of making available primary Arabic literary sources, original academic studies that include critically edited editions of important classical manuscripts will also be considered for publication. The series aims to foster an engagement with the literary sources, concepts and constructs that defined early and classical expressions of Islamic thought.
