Abstract

MS Cambridge, University Library, Or. 658 is a collection of eleven texts transmitted in anonymous and untitled form whose precise content has to date remained obscure. On closer inspection, however, the manuscript turns out to be a so-far neglected witness of some authentic and pseudepigraph works of, among others, Avicenna (d. 427/1037) and Mullā Ṣadrā (d. 1050/1640–1641). This paper aims to provide an identification of all the works contained therein, along with a hypothetical reconstruction of the milieu in which the codex was produced.
Avicenna; Mullā Ṣadrā; School of Iṣfahān; philosophical anthology; Sufism
