Mirror for princes or vizor for viziers

There are close links between the anonymous Persian twelfth-century Bahr al-fawā'id, translated by Julie Scott Meisami as The sea of precious virtues: a medieval mirror for princes (Salt Lake City, 1991) and an Arabic work entitled Mufīd al-‘ulūm wa-mubīd al-humūm, variously attributed but probably by a certain Jamāl al-Din Abū ‘Abd Allāh Muhammad Ihn Ahmad al-Qazwīnī who wrote it in 551/1156, onl... more

Rebarbative beards in classical Arabic literature

Innumerable erotic epigrams, even anthologies, on the cheek-down or “peach fuzz” (ʿidhār or khaṭṭ) of adolescent boys have been composed in Arabic. This article will ignore them (they have been studied before, notably by Thomas Bauer). Instead, it will deal with texts – predominantly poems, mostly lampoons – on proper beards. Even though the Prophet is reported to have commended the growing of ful... more

To eat or not to eat elephant: a travelling story in Arabic and Persian literature

A traveller in distress vows to God, piously but apparently pointlessly, that he will never eat elephant flesh. Subsequently, the oath would seem to be his perdition, yet in the end he is saved because of it, unlike his fellow travellers. This entertaining story is told by al-Tanūkhī (d. 384/994) in two almost identical versions. It is also found in other sources, both Arabic and Persian, among th... more
