Issue No. 10 December 2015

Abgadiyat, which promotes the values of difference, diversity, and accepting the other, includes in its tenth issue a selection of Arabic and English researches that cover a wide range of topics for scholars all over the world. In this issue, some papers focus on the study of Islamic writings, such as those inscribed on Yemeni coins dating back to the period between 696 AH and 721 AH or on the walls of an Ayyubid mosque in Damascus; and the writings that emerged during the era of the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad. Other papers study Ancient Egyptian writings—including the astronomical and cosmic symbols—on the quarries of Wadi al-Hudi, and also the writings on a funerary stela dating back to Middle Kingdom of Egypt. Topics related to the Greco-Roman civilization; the ceremonies held for goddess Neith in the towns of Sais and Esna in Egypt during the Greco-Roman period; and the inscriptions of Constantine city, east Algeria, that date back to the period from the end of the third century BCE to the fourth century CE are also tackled. All this proves the universality of Abgadiyat, which tends to cover all the alphabets and writings ever witnessed in history in a way that creates a balance among different themes of research.
