Synopsis: With reference to the great religions of the world, particularly to Christianity and Islam, symbolism is defined in a renewed consciousness that everything—numbers, elements, senses, and colors—has a vertical dimension that gives it a divine significance.

About the Author: Martin Lings, formerly Keeper of Oriental Manuscript in the British Museum and the British Library, is the author of three works on Islamic mysticism, The Book of Certainty, A Sufi Saint of the Twentieth Century and What is Sufism?, all published by the Islamic Texts Society. He is also the author of The secret of Shakespeare, Ancient Beliefs and Modern Superstitions, both published by Quinta Essentia, and the splendidly illustrated The Quranic Art of Calligraphy. His Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources, also published by the Islamic Texts Society, has been internationally acclaimed as a masterpiece.
