Islamic desk reference by E. J. van Donzel( )

23 editions published in 1994 in 3 languages and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growing demand for concise and factual information about the history and culture of Islam has now been met with the "Islamic Desk Reference," This handy one-volume work contains a condensation of the subject-matter of "The Encyclopaedia of Islam," the most prestigious and valuable reference work for Islamic studies published this century. In a brief, orderly and intelligible form the "Islamic Desk Reference" provides thus a unique and valuable quick reference tool for those interested in the religion, the believers and the countries of the Islamic world. All entries in the "Islamic Desk Reference" are given in English. Thus, names of Arabic origin which in the West were corrupted to another spelling, e.g. Ibn Sina to Avicenna, al-Kuhl to alcohol, are found under the latter term. The "Islamic Desk Reference" contains maps, diagrams and genealogical tables for easy reference, and illustrations

As so many other examples, this story pays witness to the influence of the Syriac Christian tradition on Koran and Muslim Traditions. --Book Jacket
Anqasa amin (La porte de la foi) : apologie éthiopienne du christianisme contre l'Islam à partir du Coran by ʼEnbāqom( Book )

15 editions published in 1969 in 3 languages and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'ouvrage qui fait l'objet de ce travail est une apologie du Christianisme en langue guèze, composée dans la première moiti6 du XVIe siècle, époque & laquelle l'Ethiopie chrétienne était submergée par l'invasion musulmane. Adressé par son auteur, le moine éthiopien 'Enbaqom, au célebre chef musulman, Ahmad ibn Ibrahim, surnommé le Gaucher en éthiopien (Grani), l'ouvrage est un témoignage intéressant de la lutte que mena l'église d'Ethiopie face à l'Islam envahissant. Mais le contenu de cette apologie du Christianisme, entreprise à partir du Coran, et la personnalité énigmatique de son auteur, musulman converti, posent de nombreux et délicats problèmes que M. Van Donzel examine dans la première partie de son travail (p. 1-164). Après avoir replacé l'auteur dans son cadre historique, il étudie les données que nous possédons sur sa vie et son œuvre (chap. I-V); puis il analyse sa position face au Coran et son attitude envers les musulmans (chap. VI-VII); enfin, il recherche ses sources littéraires, qu'elles soient éthiopiennes ou arabes (chap. VIII). Tout au long de cette solide étude, basée sur une documentation abondante, M. Van Donzel fait preuve d'un esprit critique toujours en éveil et d'une objectivité dont il ne se départit jamais. Nous avons là, je crois, une excellente contribution à l'histoire de la polémique islamo-chrétienne, qui intéressera non seulement les éthiopisants, mais aussi les arabisants. - from http://www.jstor.org (March 2016)

Gog and Magog in early Syriac and Islamic sources : Sallam's quest for Alexander's wall by E. J. van Donzel( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alexander's alleged Wall against Gog and Magog, often connected with the enclosure of the apocalyptic people, was a widespread theme among Syriac Christians in Mesopotamia. In the ninth century Sallam the Interpreter dictated an account of his search for the barrier to the Arab geographer Ibn Khurradadhbih. The reliability of Sallam's journey from Samarra to Western China and back (842-45), however, has always been a highly contested issue. Van Donzel and Schmidt consider the travel account as historical. This volume presents a translation of the source while at the same time it carefully looks into other Eastern Christian and Muslim traditions of the famous lore. A comprehensive survey reconstructs the political and topographical data. As so many other examples, also this story pays witness to the influence of the Syriac Christian tradition on Koran and Muslim Traditions
