Text in German. Also text in Arabic. From the Brill series 'Islamic Philosophy Theology and Science: Texts and Studies' volume 59. This study of the Sicilian Questions of the philosopher and mystic Ibn Sab'in of Murcia (ca. 1217-1270) reads the text, allegedly composed as an answer to questions sent by Frederick II as a reflection of intellectual life in the late Almohad Arab West. The first part of the book is dedicated to the author, his political and intellectual context and his impact. The second part analyses the structure and method of the text and relates it to Islamic and Jewish philosophical and mystical traditions in the Arab West. Furthermore, its literary category, context of composition and readership are discussed. The third part deals with the sources of the Sicilian Questions and their position in the Arab West. The appendix consists of a German translation of the Sicilian Questions including detailed philological and philosophical notes as well as a revised edition of the Arabic text. ; tall 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 612 pp
