About This Event
This virtual open house features a selection of prominent Arabic writings from the classical and post-classical periods among the holdings of the Islamic Manuscripts Collection preserved in the University Library. Carefully transcribed copies of classic literary works by al-Mutanabbī (d.965), Abū al-ʻAlāʼ al-Maʻarrī (d.1057), and al-Ḥarīrī (d.1122) will appear along with influential grammatical, scientific, and mystical writings — and even a text on musical theory and performance.
