Libya Islamica is a peer reviewed book series that focuses on the different historical, geographical and cultural aspects within the borders of present-day Libya, from the Islamic conquest (1st/7th century) until the establishment of the Ottoman rule (10th/16th century). The series covers a range of topics, such as the study of autonomous powers, networks and prosopography, local and regional histories, popular memories, intellectual productions, documents and deposits, linguistic variety, archaeology and epigraphy, material cultures and heritage, etc.
Libya Islamica welcomes the submission of monographs, edited volumes, critical editions in the original languages and scripts, and annotated translations. The series aims to make available material from manuscripts held in Libyan libraries through critical editions and translations of primary sources. This makes accessible previously undisclosed materials and contributes to improved historiographical perspectives.
The series serves as a publishing platform for the academic output of the LibMed project that started in 2021 and aims to uncover hitherto unknown aspects and material from medieval Libya.
The submissions will mainly be in Arabic, English and French, but works in other languages can be considered too.
