Veiling Esther, Unveiling Her Story

The Reception of a Biblical Book in Islamic Lands

Adam J. Silverstein

Oxford Studies in the Abrahamic Religions

  • Examines the ways in which the Biblical Book of Esther was read, understood, and used in Muslim lands, from ancient to modern times
  • Includes case studies covering works from various periods and regions of the Muslim world, including the Qur'an, pre-modern historical chronicles and literary works, the writings of a nineteenth-century Shia feminist, a twentieth-century Iranian encyclopaedia, and others
  • Shows that Muslim sources preserve important, pre-Islamic materials on Esther that have not survived elsewhere
