Judaeo-Arabic Studies: Proceedings of the Founding Conference of the Society for Judaeo-Arabic Studies
Psychology Press, 1997 - Foreign Language Study - 256 pages
The chapters published in this volume originate with papers presented at this first conference, and are now reproduced in a revised and up-dated format. The contributions draw as broad a picture as possible of the contemporary state of research on certain topics subsumed under the general title of Judaeo-Arabic Studies, such as the history of the Jews in Eastern and Western Arabic-speaking countries, their mores and customs, the phenomenon of Jewish sectarianism in those societies, the typology of Judaeo-Arabic literary and non-literary idioms, as well as philosophical thought and popular literature among the Arabic-speaking Jews.
