5. Book Launch: Fada’il-i Balkh
Tuesday, 20 April 5-6pm (British Summer Time (UTC+1)
This book is a critical edition and translation of the medieval local history of Balkh, known as Faḍāʾil-i Balkh (“The Merits of Balkh”), which was completed in 610 Hijrī (1214 CE) in Arabic by Shaykh al-Islām Abū Bakr ʿAbd Allāh al-Wāʿiẓ and translated into Persian by ʿAbd Allāh al-Ḥusaynī in 676 Hijri (1278 CE). It is the Persian version which survives today and forms the source text for this book.
Balkh is one of the most illustrious cities of the Islamicate East, and yet we know very little about life in the city during the first five centuries of Islam (8th-13th centuries CE). The Faḍāʾil-i Balkh, the oldest surviving local history of Balkh, changes that. You can find out more about the book on the Oxbow Books website, and register for the book launch here.Academic items
