Description

Mawlana Jalal al-Din Rumi's great poem, the Mathnawi is one of the best known and most influential works of Muslim mysticism. Nicholson's critical edition is based on the oldest known manuscripts, including the earliest, dated 1278 and preserved in the Mevlana Museum at Konya. It remains the standard text and is provided with diacritical marks to assist the student. The commentary, planned to be useful both for specialists and others, in addition to explaining numerous textual questions, traces Rumi's sources and cites many parallels to his ideas.
