About this product
- DescriptionThe Jawidan-nama-yi kabir ('Great Book of Eternity') was the magnum opus of Faḍl Allah Astarabadi (d. 796/1394) and provided the basis of the Ḥurufi movement. Today it is one of the most important kwn texts belonging to the mystical and messianic current that became particularly active in Iran and Anatolia following the Mongol rule. It illuminates the contemporary reconfiguration of religious and political authority along messianic and charismatic lines that took place in the Islamic East, which arguably contributed to the rise and consolidation of the Ottoman, Ṣafawid and Mughal dynasties. Words of Power is the first comprehensive study of Faḍl Allah's seminal work. Orkhan Mir-Kasimov summarises Faḍl Allah's biography, charts the history of the Ḥurufi movement, contextualises the Jawidan-nama within Islamic intellectual history, and considers its lasting impact in the Muslim world.
