This article is a description and guide to the contents of al-Maqāmāt al-Ǧalāliyya by al-Ḥasan b. Abī Muḥammad al-Ṣafadī (fl. first quarter of the 8th/14th c.). The article begins with a discussion of the life of the author al-Ṣafadī and his works. It provides evidence for his biography derived from unpublished manuscript sources. The article then considers features of the authorial context of al-Maqāmāt al-Ǧalāliyya, including notes found in Laleli ms 1929, and evidence for the dedication of al-Maqāmāt al-Ǧalāliyya to the famed geographer, historian, and ruler of Hama, al-Malik al-Muʾayyad Abū l-Fidāʾ (672/1273-732/1332). The remainder of the article provides a description of al-Maqāmāt al-Ǧalāliyya, its narrative structures, the contents of the thirty individual maqāmāt, and explores parallels between al-Maqāmāt al-Ǧalāliyya and other works of the maqāma genre. The final section includes a sample text of al-Maqāma l-Tīzīniyya and an accompanying commentary.
