>>>> world for a great portion of that time. In a far-reaching analysis that

>>>> how the Saljuqs tried to create a lasting political presence by joining
>>>> forces with scholars and saints, among them a number of well-known Sufi
>>>> Muslims, who functioned under state patronage.
>>>>
>>>> In order to legitimize their political power, Saljuq rulers presented
>>>> themselves as champions of what they alleged was an orthodox and
>>>> normative view of Islam. Their notion of religious orthodoxy was
>>>> constructed by administrators in state-sponsored arenas such as 
>>>> madrasas
>>>> and khanaqahs. Thus orthodoxy was linked to political loyalty, and
>>>> disloyalty to the state was articulated in terms of religious heresy.
>>>> Drawing on a vast reservoir of primary sources and eschewing
>>>> anachronistic terms of analysis such as nationalism, Safi revises
>>>> conventional views both of the Saljuqs as benevolent Muslim rulers and
>>>> of
>>>> the Sufis as timeless, ethereal mystics. He makes a significant
>>>> contribution to understanding premodern Islam as well as illuminating

>>>> leading
>>>> specialists and clearly contextualised for introductory-level students,

>>>> al-Farabi on the faculties of the soul; and extracts from Rumi's
>>>> Mathnawi. Classical Islam includes a glossary, extensive bibliography

>>>> explanatory prefaces for each text. It pays special attention to the
>>>> literary genres of medieval Muslim scholarship, within whose creative
>>>> variations Islamic doctrine took form and matured. With many extracts
>>>> translated here for the first time into English, fresh from Arabic and
