Seal of the Saints by Michel Chodkiewicz
In recent years a number of important studies helped acquaint the Western reader with Ibn 'Arabi's metaphysics so that a coherent picture of his spiritual supremacy has begun to emerge. This Process is now greatly enhanced by the present volume in which Michel Chodkiewicz explores for the first time, the Master's 'hagiology' or teaching on sainthood. Founded on a careful analysis of the relevant texts, Chodidewitz's work examines this essential aspect of Ibn 'Arabi's formulation of a doctrine of sainthood, defining the nature and function of sainthood, while also specifying the criteria for a typology of saints based on the notion of prophetic inheritance.
