This collection of essays provides a timely reassessment of nineteenth-century Islamic art and architecture. The essays demonstrate that the arts of that era were vibrant and diverse, making ingenious use of native traditions and materials or adopting imported conventions and new technologies. However, traditionalists, revivalists and modernists all referred in one way or another to an Islamic heritage, whether to reinvent, revive or reject it. Beginning with an historical introduction and an assessment of changing attitudes towards the visual arts the following essays provide case studies of architecture and art in Ottoman Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, sub-Saharan Africa, Iran, Central Asia, India and the Caribbean. They examine such issues as patronage, sources of artistic inspiration and responses to European art. The essays have a relevance and importance for our understanding of the societies and attitudes of that time, and have a direct bearing on the more general debate concerning cultural identity and the integration of modern ideas in the Muslim world. The book is richly illustrated with very many illustrations in black-and-white and in full colour.

Islamic art is justly famed for its technological sophistication, varied approaches to ornament, and innovative employment of the written word. But what do we know about the skilled artisans who spent their lives designing and creating the paintings, objects and buildings that are so admired today? This anthology of written sources (dating from the seventh to the twentieth centuries) explores numerous aspects of the crafts of the Middle East from the processing of raw materials to the manufacture of finished artefacts. You will learn about: the legal and ethical dimensions of the arts and crafts, the organisation of labour in urban and rural contexts, the everyday lives of artisans, the gendered dimensions of making things, and the impact of industrialisation upon traditional methods of manufacture. Each chapter begins with an introduction providing a wider context for the primary sources. There are also suggestions for further reading.

Al-Farabi (870–950) war einer der bedeutendsten arabischen Philosophen, der sich um die Vermittlung der islamischen Philosophie mit dem Denken der griechischen Antike besondere Verdienste erwarb. Seine Schrift "Über die Wissenschaften" erlangte durch die Übersetzung von Gerhard von Cremona eine nachhaltige Rezeption in der Philosophie des lateinischen Mittelalters. Denn in dieser Schrift beschreibt und bewertet Al-Farabi alle zu seiner Zeit bekannten Wissenschaften, erörtert sie in ihren Funktionen und Untergliederungen und setzt sie zueinander in Beziehung. Die eigentliche Bedeutung dieser Schrift liegt jedoch darin, den Erkenntnissen der beschriebenen Wissenschaften ihr eigenes Recht gegenüber den überlieferten Lehren der Religion zuzuschreiben und das Verhältnis zwischen Glauben und Wissen neu zu bestimmen.
