This volume, the third in the series on Daghestan, contains thirteen papers enhancing awareness of Daghestan´s rich heritage as a major center of Islamic scholarship and of the immense quantity of manuscripts. The book opens with a more general review on Daghestan philology, a memorial essay to Prof. Gammer, who sadly passed away in 2013. The other articles introduce the reader not only to the manuscripts and printed publications in Arabic, but also in other Islamic languages used in Daghestan. For example, Persian and Turkic inscriptions and manuscripts have hardly been studied before this publication. Local languages written in the Arabic alphabet, known as ájam?, are of great interest to Daghestani scholars. The final part of the volume is dedicated to the history of the study of Arabic culture in Daghestan. Printed Pages: 226.
