The book examines the history of the Ibadi prosopographical (siyar) tradition in northern Africa, arguing for the crucial role of these texts in the formation of an Ibadi tradition in the Maghrib. The argument is built using tools borrowed from network analysis and codicology, offering a new way to think about religious community formation.

يسرني الإعلان بصدر كتابي الأول، “الإباضية في شمال إفريقيا: المخطوطات والتنشيط وتكوين التاريخ المكتوب” (منشورات جامعة كابريج ٢٠١٨). يمكن الحصول عليه هنا في أمازون في المملكة المتحدة وسيكون متفوّرا على الموقع الأمريكي في المستقبل القريب. ويمكن تصفح الكتاب هنا في موقع دار النشر.
