Popular Sufism in Eastern Europe by H. T. Norris

Book Description

This is a detailed description of the various Sufi orders and movements which entered into the Balkans, the Crimean peninsula and other parts of Eastern Europe following the Ottoman conquests. Many of the Sufis came from Christian societies, principally from an Eastern Orthodox background, but others, such as the Bosnians, from churches that were accused or suspected of heterodoxy of belief and of antinomianism. These beliefs, together with pre-Christian beliefs, influenced by Manicheanism, Dualism and pantheism, left their mark on Sufi Islam. The book concentrates on the Bosnians, Bulgarians, Albanians and Tatars. Their Sufism reflects their national aspirations, and their writings fuse their mysticism, national faith and folklore in a Sufism which is quite distinct from that in other regions of the Muslim world.

Sufi Mystics of the Niger Desert by H. T. Norris Sufi Mystics of the Niger Desert, Hardback (September 1990)

A study of the life of Sidi Mahmud al-Baghdadi, who is believed to have introduced new doctrines of Oriental Sufism into the Air Massif during the 16th century. His teachings are still important for contemporary Islam in the Niger Republic which is a bridge between the Arab world and the Muslim states of the African Sahel.

Arab Conquest of the Western Sahara by H. T. Norris Arab Conquest of the Western Sahara, Hardback (January 1986)

Drawing on numerous sources including travellers and historians such as Ibn Battutah, plus local historians steeped in the traditions of oral history, the author examines how the tribes of the western Sahara responded to the arrival of the Arabs, particularly during the 13th and 17th centuries.
