Путь и дороги праведных в книге ʻАттара «Поминание друзей Божиих»

Шаги/Steps. 2016. Т. 2. № 2-3. С. 194-207.

The research project on hagiographic narrative in Persian literature and culture is now in progress in the Laboratory of Oriental Studies and comparative linguistics SASH. Currently the research is centered in the study of the first full-scale collection of the sacred biographies, Memorial of God's Friends by Farid ad-Din ʻAttar, and in the commented translation of the book into Russian. The article provides an outline of the main aspects of study (narrative patterns at the formative period of the Persian hagiographic life writing; the sainthood narrative and its impact beyond the genre) and serves as an introduction to the sample translations from ʻAttar’s compendium published in this journal.
