Inscriptions in Arabic, Persian and Turkish constitute a remarkable source for the history of the Islamic world. The earliest Arabic inscriptions represent some of our earliest firmly dated Muslim sources for Islamic history, while in later periods inscriptions often constitute unique contemporary evidence for not just the building activities sponsored by rulers and high officials, but also raw historical data such as dates of rulers and events.
Dear MEMbers (and prospective MEMbers),
We need you to renew your membership!

We ask therefore that you renew for one year ($40/individuals or $250/institutions) or for multiple years at your earliest convenience.
