About the Author

Claude Addas is a scholar of Ibn Arabi and the author of Ibn Arabi: The Voyage of No Return, published by the Islamic Texts Society.


'This excellent biography is the first of its kind.'
* L'evenement du Jeudi *
'I read it like a novel, a novel written in captivating style and with a seeming infinite love for its hero - a novel distinguished by its meticulous care for details and full of trustworthy information taken from manuscripts and printed sources... It is more than a translation: with the author's help, some additions have been made, some points clarified.' -- Annemarie Schimmel
'The first serious biography of the most influential figure in the history of Islamic mysticism. It is based on an enormous amount of documentary evidence... In his voluminous writings Ibn 'Arabi recounted his visionary experiences, his journeys, real and imaginary, and his meetings with other mystics, both alive and dead.'
