‭Al-Ṣafī Ibn al-ʿAssāl is well known as a canonist, but much less so as an apologist. He is the author of three major apologies and a shorter one and wrote epitomes of various apologetic works by earlier Christian writers. Following a brief outline of al-Ṣafī’s life, I shall inroduce his apologetic treatises and the works they aim to refute. For each text I will point to the earliest manuscripts and available editions and give a short outline of its contents. The article closes with a short overview on the reception of al-Ṣafī’s apologetic works and a sample edition of a short extract from his K. al-Ṣaḥāʾiḥ fī Jawāb al-naṣāʾiḥ.‬
