Изречения философов над гробом Александра Великого по «Истории» ал-Макӣна ибн ал-ʿАмӣда
The medieval Christian Arabic historian (13th c. A.D.) Ǧirǧis al-Makīn ibn al-ʿAmīd is well known not only in Middle Eastern Christian and traditional Muslim historiography, but also in Western scholarship since the 17th century. Despite this, however, the first volume of his most important work – The Blessed Compendium (al-Maǧmūʿ al-mubārak) – still remains unpublished. The present article discusses the section of al-Makīn’s history devoted to Alexander the Great, which contains laments of the philosophers over Alexander. The study includes a critical edition of the Arabic text of the laments, based on four manuscripts, a Russian translation, and a commentary.
