Encyclopaedia Islamica

Edited by Wilferd Madelung and Farhad Daftary

Publisher: BRILL

The 16 volume Encyclopaedia Islamica is due to become one of the major comprehensive reference works on Islam and the Muslim world. It is an abridged and edited translation of the Persian Dāʾirat al-Maʿārif-i Buzurg-i Islāmī, one of the most comprehensive sources on Islam and the Muslim world. One unique feature of this work of reference lies in the attention it gives to Shiʿi Islam and its rich and diverse heritage, which makes it complementary to other encyclopaedias. In addition to providing entries on important themes, subjects and personages in Islam generally, it offers the western reader an opportunity to appreciate the various dimensions of Shiʿi Islam, the Persian contribution to Islamic civilization, and the spiritual dimensions of the Islamic tradition.

The series published two volumes over the last 5 years.
