The Proof

Yūḥannā ibn al-Ṣalt

Date: Unknown, 2nd half 9th c.?

Original Language: Arabic


This work is a refutation of Islam, according to Sbath, Fihris, i, p. 7.


Since the work is inaccessible, the precise contents cannot be known, but in all likelihood it followed the trend of 9th-century Arabic Christian treatises against Islam. It is not cited in later works and we may therefore conclude that it had no significant impact on later Christian apologists.
