Synopsis: This volume brings to light a highly significant but little known area of Islamic spirituality. Editor John Renard has assembled here a volume of texts, most translated here for the first time, culled from the great Sufi manuals of spirituality, on the theme of the complex and multi-faceted role of knowledge in relation to the spiritual life. He presents excerpts on knowledge from the works of nine major Muslim teachers, most translated from Arabic, but also including important texts from Persian originals. The Introduction offers a survey of the development of Sufi modes of knowing through the thirteenth century in their broader context, and then focuses on the manuals or compendia of Sufi spirituality treated here. Historical notes provide brief identifications of many of the individual sources and personalities mentioned throughout the treatises.

About the Author: John Renard received a Ph.D. in Islamic Studies, with a specialization in religious literature in Arabic and Persian and religious art, from Harvard University in 1978. He's currently a professor of comparative theology and the history of religion at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. His publications include" All the King's Falcons: Rumi on Prophets and Revelation, Seven doors to Islam, Windows on the House of Islam, and Islam" and "the Heroic Image," as well as volumes on Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism in Paulist Press's "101 Questions "series.
