Islam and the Divine Comedy

By: Asin, Miguel (1871-1944, Spain) / Translated by: Sunderland, Harold


Language: English


This book is an abridged translation of La Escatologia Musalmana en la Divina Comedia originally published in Spanish in Madrid in 1919. Prof. Asin discovered parallels between the Islamic lore about the After-life based on Hadith, and The Divine Comedy by the famous Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). Though this created a controversy at that time, now the opinion of all eminent scholars of Europe and America is in favour of Prof. Asin?s thesis.

2002 English Edition of the 1926 English translation of 'La Escatologia Musalmana en la Divina Comedia' by Miguel Asín Palacios, first published in 1919. Abridged and translated by Harold Sunderland.
