This book contains the proceedings of the 7th Conference on Editing Islamic Manuscripts titled “Editing Manuscripts on Literature and Language”. This conference was organised by the Centre for the Study of Islamic Manuscripts, at Al-Furqān Islamic Heritage Foundation, and convened at the Foundation’s headquarters in London on 25-26 November 2015. Within the conference subjects, the papers addressed: the methodology of critical editing of poetry manuscripts; critical editing of Andalusian poetry manuscripts; problems of critically editing language manuscripts; critical edition of Arabic language manuscripts: Ibn Dahān’s explanation of al-Luma‘ fī al-‘Arabiyyah by Ibn Jinnī as an example; methodologies of authoring and editing language manuscripts: books on horses as an example; Maghribī critical editions of manuscripts in rhetoric (al-balāghah) and criticism (al-naqd): al-Manza‘ al-Badī‘ as an example; and the Būlāq publications on language and literature: an approach to critical edition. The conference secured the participation of around thirty highly qualified and expert delegates in the different disciplines from British and other higher educational and heritage institutions. The lectures were presented by a group of leading scholars and critical editors from around the world. Their research and academic papers addressed the reality and aspirations of the manuscript editing movement in the area of literature and language.
