9789004277601: Al-Maqrīzīs Traktat Uber Die Mineralien: Kitāb Al-Maqāṣid Al-Saniyyah Li-Maʿrifat Al-Aǧsām Al-Maʿdiniyyah (Bibliotheca Maqriziana) (German Edition)

Der kurze Traktat al-Maqāṣid al-saniyyah li-maʿrifat al-aǧsām al-maʿdiniyyah des beruhmten agyptischen Geschichtsschreibers al-Maqrīzī (gest. 845/1442) befasst sich mit der Klassifikation der Mineralien, ihren medizinischen Anwendungen sowie Theorien uber ihre Entstehung. Kas legt hier erstmals eine kritische Textedition mit deutscher Ubersetzung und ausfuhrlichem Kommentar vor. Grundlage der Edition des arabischen Texts war in der Hauptsache ein Leidener Codex, der von al-Maqrīzī eigenhandig korrigiert und mit Glossen erweitert wurde. Ein Faksimile der Handschrift wird in diesem Band ebenfalls abgedruckt. Kas konnte nachweisen, dass der Traktat fast vollstandig von den Enzyklopadien Ibn Faḍlallāh al-ʿUmarīs und al-Qazwīnīs abhangig ist. Die Inhalte der Mineralienkapitel dieser Werke lassen sich ihrerseits bis zu den fruhen arabischen Naturphilosophen und ihren griechischen Vorlaufern zuruckverfolgen. The short treatise entitled al-Maqāṣid al-saniyyah li-maʿrifat al-aǧsām al-maʿdiniyyah by the famous Egyptian historiographer al-Maqrīzī (d. 845/1442) deals with the classification of minerals, their medicinal uses and theories of their coming into being. Kas presents for the first time a critical edition of this text along with a German translation and a detailed commentary. The edition of the Arabic text is mainly based on the Leiden codex corrected and enlarged by al-Maqrīzī himself. A facsimile of this manuscript is also provided in this volume. Kas was able to prove that the treatise depends almost exclusively on the encyclopedias by Ibn Faḍlallāh al-ʿUmarī and al-Qazwīnī. The contents of their chapters on minerals can in turn be traced back to the early Arabic natural philosophers and their Greek precursors.

Review:

"The outstanding work that Fabian Kas has done so far on the difficult and intriguing subject of Arabic mineralogy will hopefully redraw attention to this somewhat neglected but no less important field of research; and together with the recent study of al-Tīfāshī's stone-book by Armin Schopen and Karl W. Strau, it might even pave the way for other scholars to arrive at a deeper understanding of the multifaceted world which medieval mineralogy evokes. The book reviewed here is, in any case, a stunningly flawless achievement." Oliver Kahl in Journal of Semitic Studies, vol 61, no 2, October 2016.
