Основы христианско-мусульманских отношений по свидетельству «Собеседований» Илии Нисивинского и везира Абу-л-Касима ал-Магриби
The Book of Sessions (Kitāb al-maǧālis) of Elias of Nisibis is a remarkable example of the Arab-Christian literature of the 11th century CE which is still pending its full critical edition. The content of the book is an account of the discussions between Metropolitan Elias (975–1046) and his Muslim vis-vis — wazir Abū ʾl-Qāsim al-Ḥusayn ibn ʿAlī al-Maghribī (981–1027). This work demonstrates the intellectual contacts between the different religious traditions of medieval Arab culture in its flourishing age as well as characteristics of the Christian literature developed in the Syro-Mesopotamian region in that epoch. This publication provides a critical survey of the treatise and a Russian translation of the chapter from the seventh session with a discussion of the basics of Christian-Muslim relations.
