Адам и Слово: Второе собеседование Илии Нисивинского и Абу-л-Касима ал-Магриби
"The Book of Sessions" (Kitāb al-maǧālis) by Iliyya of Nisibis is a remarkable monument of the Arabic-Christian writing of the 11th century. It is a literary reworked record of the conversations of Metropolitan of Nisibis with a Muslim interlocutor, vizier Abū-l-Qāsim al-Maghribī. The second maǧlis contains a Christological discussion about the concept al-ḥulūl - [God’s] indwelling. The text of this conversation consists of two main parts. In the first part—on which this publication is focused on—the subject of the discussion is the Christian confession of the special nature of the "indwelling" of God in Christ. The Russian translation of this part, based on the oldest manuscript of the "Book of Sessions" is preceeded with an introductory article.
