About this product
- DescriptionThe Muslim thinker, Abu 'Isa al-Warraq, lived in ninth-century Baghdad. He is remembered for his extensive kwledge of n-Muslim religious communities and his urthodox views on Islam itself. This book represents an edition and translation of Abu 'Isa's Against the Incarnation, the second and last part of his Refutation of the Three Christian Deminations. It is edited and translated by David Thomas and contains the Arabic text alongside the English translation, together with explanatory tes. Dr Thomas' full introduction outlines the pluralist and multifaith society of medieval Baghdad, and places Abu 'Isa in the context of both Muslim theological argument and Christian-Muslim discussions. In this way it demonstrates the author's originality and his influence on later Muslim authors. The book will serve as a companion to the editor's earlier volume, Anti-Christian Polemic in Early Islam: Abu 'Isa al-Warraq's 'Against the Trinity' which was published in 1992.
- Author BiographyDavid Thomas is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Theology and Religion, University of Birmingham. His publications include Anti-Christian Polemic in Early Islam: Abu 'Isa al-Warraq's 'Against the Trinity (1992), and Syrian Christians under Islam, the First Thousand Years (2000).
