Some Resources on Islam and Judaism Held by CRL

Arabic Manuscripts in the British LibraryIslamic Mysticism & Philosophy. Microfiche published by IDC Publishers
Because printing came late to the Middle East, relatively few of the key Arabic texts for Islamic Studies have ever been printed. Hence manuscript sources are particularly important in this field of study. This large British Library microfiche set reproduces works of Muslim philosophers in all fields of philosophical study, as well as various versions of key Greek texts and commentaries on same. Works address teachings on morality and conduct, both personal and public.
