Adventskalender (Türlein XI) - Islamische Handschriften online

Schon allein Sprachbarrieren sind dafür verantwortlich. Aber ich habe keine andere Linkliste gefunden, die annähernd so umfangreich ist wie die hier Präsentierte (weitergehende Links zu islamischen Handschriften allgemein bietet etwa die kanadische McGill-University, einige Link zu Museen mit islamischer Kunst hier). Man trifft meist nur die "üblichen Verdächtigen", nämlich bekannte und seit Jahren im Netz befindliche Angebote an. Es mag ja sein, dass ich für Islamwissenschaftler Eulen nach Athen trage, aber dann sollen sie doch gefälligst eine Linkliste ins Netz stellen und sei es nur in delicious. Ergänzungen sind also willkommen. Viele der digitalisierten Handschriften bieten sehenswerte Kalligraphie oder Illustrationen, die man genießen kann, auch wenn man keine Silbe Arabisch versteht (wie ich)!

The main goal of this project is to preserve the historical manuscript collection housed at the Al-aqsa Mosque Library in Jerusalem.

Endangered Archives Programme: Item Overview

The Al-aqsa Library located at the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem serves as a primary research center for Islamic studies and as a reference library for scholars and students from Jerusalem and other Palestinian cities. The library’s rare and most valuable collection consists of approximately 2000 manuscripts. The manuscripts were acquired by the Al-aqsa Library from prominent scholars, private collections, and from libraries in Palestine that have ceased to exist.

The materials selected for this project represent 119 manuscript titles in the most immediate need of preservation. Digitisation is planned primarily as a means of preservation in order to create high-quality archival digital copies of the original source materials that are at risk of deterioration.
