Quaderni di Arabia Antica 5

ARABI. Arabs recount Arabia before Islam. Part II


The project ARABI collects narrative texts, both in Arabic and English translation, from classical Arabic literature and historiography concerning Pre-Islamic Arabia.

This second volume focuses on the building of the glorious past of two Arab tribes, which played an important role in the seventh and eight century CE as part of a Yemenite faction in the struggles for power of the first 150 years from Hijra: al-Azd and Quḍāʿa.

Five examples of that narrative are given, in both original Arabic and English translation.
