About this Project

(Project duration: July 2013 - June 2014)

This one-year project aimed to develop a long-term research agenda capable of approaching transformative intellectual trends in the postclassical Muslim tradition by studying the reception of the works of polymath ‘Abd al-Rahmān Jāmī (1414-1492), one of the most widely read authors in the Eurasian continent between his lifetime and the early modern period. Ambitious in its theoretical aims and grounded in creative philological approaches, this project endeavored to provide answers to crucial questions largely neglected by Islamic historiography. UChicago faculty and visiting scholars refined a long-term agenda and prepared a digital collection and searchable corpus of Unicode texts comprising Jāmī’s works along with the Indian commentaries published by Naval Kishore in the 19th century.
