Naḥw al-qulūb al-ṣaġīr: Il «Trattato minore sulla grammatica dei cuori» di ‘Abd al-Karīm al-Qušayrī (376-465/986-1072). Presentazione e traduzione annotata
This text of al-Qušayrī is one of the oldest treatises on mystical interpretation of grammar terminology. The recognition of the sacred character of speech was one of the bases on which Sufis formed their mystical lexicon. At the same time the acknowledgement of the sacred character of Arabic leaded the Sufis to develop a symbolic lecture of Arabic grammar and of its lexicon. This item opens new implications about the relationship between theology and language, with particular attention to the problem of metalanguage.
