Translated Texts for Historians LUP

  • This is the first extant Arabic annalistic chronicle and a useful and straightforward source.
  • Carl Wurtzel translated the portion of Ibn Khayyat's chronicle that relates to the Umayyad period (AD 660-750) for his PhD thesis (Yale, 1977).
  • The translation is of a very high standard, and there has been no further work on this text since Wurtzel's thesis.
  • Robert Hoyland has written a preface and added an updated bibliography.
