Published: In the Footsteps of Andalusi Mystics & Intellectuals

Now that al-Andalus has become a ‘trending topic’ in the Arab World, another article of mine was published in Al-RAWI – Egypt’s Heritage Review, this time about the lasting legacy left by Andalusi mystics and intellectuals in Egypt, with a focus on Alexandria, Damietta and Cairo.

While al-Maghreb received a huge wave of Morsicos, Egypt and Syria had their fair share of Andalusi immigrations during earlier centuries. Celebrities like al-Mursi, Ibn al-Baitar and Ibn Arabi ended up settling and dying in both countries after having taught and shared their knowledge with devout followers.

The article tells it all, and the official website of the magazine is:
