Dante and Islam

Edited by Jan M. Ziolkowski

A Fordham University Press Publication

Historicizing Dante

  • Dante's familiarity with Islam has opened an important area of Dante scholarship over the last decade, so much so that at least one graduate program is suggesting that incoming Danteists know Arabic.
  • Includes groups of essays on "Dante and Knowledge of the Qur'an," "Images of Islamic Philosophy and Learning in Dante," "Images of Muhammad in Dante," and "Islam in Dante's Italy."
