Encyclopaedia Islamica free pdf This volume of "Encyclopaedia Islamica" is the first of a projected 16-volume publication, consisting of an abridged and edited translation of the Persian "Dirat al-Marif-i Buzurg-i Islm", 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 Shi'i 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 Shi'i Islam, the Persian contribution to Islamic civilisation, and the spiritual dimensions of the Islamic tradition.
