Summary:
For over a century, Euro-American scholars and esotericists alike have heralded the thirteenth-century Spanish mystic Ibn ʻArabi (d. 1240) as the premodern Sufi theorist of inclusive religious universalism who claimed all contemporaneous religions as equally valid beyond the religio-political divide of medieval exclusivism. 'Rethinking Ibn 'Arabi' calls into question this Western image of Ibn 'Arabi and throws into relief how his discourse is inseparably intertwined with the absolutist vision of his own religious milieu - that is, the triumphant claim that Islam fulfilled, superseded, and therefore abrogated all previously revealed religions.
