Persian Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A complete copy of Book Five of the <i>Mas̲navī-i Ma‘navī</i> (Spiritual Couplets) by Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī (1207–1273), the fourth of a six-volume set together with <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>Persian MS 250</a>, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>251</a>, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>252</a>, <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>253</a>, and <a target='_blank' class='externalLink uom-purple' href=''>255</a>. Since the set bears dedications to Prince Muḥammad Mu‘aẓẓam Bahādur Shāh, son of the Mughal Emperor ‘Ālamgīr I, who later succeeded his father as Shāh ‘Ālam Bahādur I (r. 1707–1712), he likely commissioned it. A scribe named Sirāj al-Dīn Kūrahvī mainly completed the set, including this volume, possibly in either Calcutta or Kabul in circa the 38th and 43rd years of the Mughal Emperor ‘Ālamgīr's reign (1695–mid-1699 CE), when he completed two others. Another man named ‘Abd al-Karīm ibn Muḥammad Ḥasan also completed at least one other volume in the set in Shahjahanabad (Old Delhi). </p>
