Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

At a time when Maulana Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273 A.D.) has been attracting more and more readers interested in the history of Islamic mysticism, this timely book which consists of an interesting and original combination of elements - history, spirituality, poetry, philosophy and art - will appeal to a wide variety of readers. It is beautifully illustrated and includes interesting examples of Persian calligrapy and attractive photographs.
