The Encyclopedia of Religious and Philosophical Writings in Late Antiquity offers easily accessible introductions to the content and historical setting of the main writings of Greco-Roman paganism, early Judaism, and formative Christianity from the period of Alexander the Great to Mohammed. Examining over seven hundred ancient texts, the Encyclopedia provides for each document details of authorship and provenance, a statement of the text’s content and place within its religious tradition, a listing of editions and commentaries, and a bibliography of the pertinent scholarly literature. The Encyclopedia of Religious and Philosophical Writings in Late Antiquity is an unparalleled resource both for general readers and for scholars of ancient religion and philosophy.

For more information about the Encyclopeadia of Islam Online visit www.encislam.brill.com to view a free demo or to place your order.

To accompany the existing Index of Persons, Brill has prepared an Index of Subjects, intended as an extra aid when using the Encyclopaedia of Islam. The sheer amount of information contained in the EI, and the fact that the entries are given in their Arabic form, require a good deal of searching on the part of the user, which the Index of Persons can only partially alleviate.
The Subject Index, now fully covering Volumes I-XI of the Encyclopaedia of Islam, aims to lighten the user's work by providing a guide to the EI in the form of a thesaurus. Entries are given in English and are followed by the titles of the relevant EI-articles, as well as cross-references to articles which are not primarily about that subject, but include information which could be useful.
The student and scholar of Islam are hereby given a boost in unravelling the enormous richness of Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Series:

Edited by E.J. van Donzel

It is obvious that the contents of a publication such as the Encyclopaedia of Islam are by far richer than might appear from the title of the articles alone. Thus, all who work in the field of Islamic studies will welcome the appearance of the new cumulative index of proper names to volumes I - X of the Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Glossary and Index of Terms to Volumes I-IX and to the Supplement, Fascicules 1-6

Series:

Edited by Peri Bearman, E.J. van Donzel, Bosworth, Heinrichs and Thierry Bianquis

The Glossary & Index of Terms is, next to the Index of Proper Names and the Index of Subjects the third key to the vast corpus of knowledge contained in The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
The Glossary & Index of Terms, now brought up to date with the data of volume nine of the main work (1997, 920 pages), deals with the terms in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and other languages or dialects of the Islamic world.
Especially the listing of terms which are not given as a headword in The Encyclopaedia itself, but are discussed in the course of an article - and consequently hard to be found - will be of value to scholars and non-specialists alike.
Highly recommended for use with The Encyclopaedia of Islam.

Glossary and Index of Technical Terms to Volumes I-VIII and to the Supplement, Fascicules 1-6

Series:

Jos van Lent

Edited by Gregory Bearman

As part of the series of Indexes to The Encyclopaedia of Islam which serve to make this enormous body of information easily accessible, the Glossary and Index treats the technical terms in Arabic, Persian, Turkish, Urdu and other languages or dialects of the Islamic world. As an index, it is of immeasurable importance, in particular for the many terms which are not given an entry but are discussed in the course of an article; and as glossary it is an invaluable source of information for both non-specialist, who is given an insight into the varied and rich vocabulary of Islam, and the specialist, who may discover surprising new contexts in which a term is used. Highly recommended for use with The Encyclopaedia of Islam.
