Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book Historic Cities of the Islamic World. Much has been written on the post-conquest development of the Islamic city. There is its continuity in sites with pre-Islamic urban settlements, from such disparate regions as Syria and Egypt of Classical Antiquity and Yemen of ancient South Arabian civilisation, and there is a continuity with the ancient world in public institutions like markets and baths. It is agreed by both academics and the general public, indeed, all those concerned with Islam as a faith and with the Islamic world as a historical entity, that the new, second edition of the Encyclopaedia of Islam is an immense work of erudition, the culmination of the achievements of twentieth-century scientific scholarship in Islamic studies.

Keywords: ancient South Arabian civilisation; Islamic world
