Title al-Sahib ibn 'Abbad, promoter of rational theology : two Mu'tazili kalam texts from the Cairo Geniza / edited by Wilferd Madelung Sabine Schmidtke
Published Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 2016


Description 1 online resource
Series Islamic history and civilization ; v. 132
Contents Fragments from the Kitab nahj al-sabil fi 'l-usul of al-Sahib b. 'Abbad -- Fragments from 'Abd al-Jabbar al-Hamadhani's commentary on an anonymous theological treatise by al-Sahib b. 'Abbad
Summary The volume contains critical editions of the extant parts of two hitherto unknown theological works by the Būyid vizier al-Ṣāḥib born ʿAbbād (d. 385/925), who is well known to have vigorously promoted the teaching of Muʿtazilī theology throughout Būyid territories and beyond. The manuscripts on which the edition is based come from Cairo Geniza store rooms. They consist of two manuscripts for each of the two texts--testimony to the impact of al-Ṣāḥib's education policy on the contemporaneous Jewish community in Cairo. The longer treatise of al-Ṣāḥib of circa 350/960, possibly his Kitāb Nahj al-sabīl fī uṣūl al-dīn , appears to be the earliest Muʿtazilī work preserved among the Jewish community. The second, briefer treatise also contains a commentary by ʿAbd al-Jabbār al-Hamadānī (d. 415/1025)
