Chapter Summary

David's role in the production of the Arabic text is not entirely clear; certainly, the section on the Trinity and Incarnation is not a translation from Syriac, but to a considerable extent a compilation of materials composed in Arabic, is presented in this chapter. In much of the manuscript tradition, Kitāb al-kamāl is transmitted together with a Maronite Nomocanon, and it was the ensemble that was published in 1935 by P. Fahed under the (misleading) title Kitāb al-hudā. As Samir has pointed out, the very structure of the work is of interest for the history of Christian-Muslim relations, as it mirrors the 'pillars' of Islamic practice, only pilgrimage being left out. Kitāb al-kamāl is significant as a presentation of Christian faith and practice that was accepted and transmitted within the Maronite community.
