Medieval Islam: a study in cultural orientation by Gustave E. von Grunebaum ( Book )
74 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book has grown out of a series of public lectures delivered in the spring of 1945 in the Division of the Humanities of the University of Chicago. It proposes to outline the cultural orientation of the Muslim Middle Ages, with eastern Islam as the center of attention. It attempts to characterize the medieval Muslim's view of himself and his peculiarly defined universe, the fundamental intellectual and emotional attitudes that governed his works, and the mood in which he lived his life. It strives to explain the structure of his universe in terms of inherited, borrowed, and original elements, the institutional framework within which it functioned, and its place in relation to the contemporary Christian world

Muhammadan festivals by Gustave E. von Grunebaum ( Book )
40 editions published between 1951 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By drawing from a wide spectrum of sources including medieval Arabic manuscripts, modern Arab authors and European travelers, G. E. von Grunebaum portrays the typical Muslim as a practicing believer by showing him at prayer, on Pilgrimage and in the act of honoring saints. The complexities of Islam festivals and practices such as salat(worship), the hajj (pilgriomageto Mecca), and the saum (fasting during Ramadan), are examined as typical elements of Islamic ritual, rather than the peculiarities of any one sect, any one period or any one nationality. The author also looks at the cult of local saints throughout the Islamic world, as well as the intense interest that centred on the Prophet Muhammad, his physical attributes and the major events in his life. Muhammad Festivals offers concise, lucid and straightforward information essential to students of Islam and comparative religion." -- Book cover
