[Fez, City of Islam] Fez, City of Islam
By: Titus Burckhardt
hardback 175 Pages
Fez, City of Islam is undoubtedly one of Titus Burckhardtâ€™s masterpieces. It conveys a profound understanding of the sacred roots that nourish Islamic culture and civilisation. As a young man in the 1930s, Burckhardt spent some years in Morocco where he became acquainted with several remarkable representatives of the spiritual heritage of the Maghrib. Although he committed much of this experience to writing, it was not until the 1950s that these writings were developed into a book. In Fez, City of Islam, Burckhardt writes of the history of a people and their religion - a history that was often violent, often heroic and sometimes holy.
