Prayer for al-Maʾmūn

Theodore Abū Qurra

Date: Late 8th or early 9th c.

Original Language: Arabic

Description

This rather curious piece is a short prayer, in rhymed prose, for the Caliph al-Maʾmūn, asking God to grant him wisdom and protection.

Significance

If this work is actually by Theodore, one wonders if it might not originally have been the preface or conclusion to a larger work, now lost.

Manuscripts

MS Sinai - Ar. 447, fols 181v-182v (13th c.)
