Classic Arabic Texts Online cover image

Abū Jaʿfar Muḥammad ibn Jarīr al-Ṭabarī (d. 923 C.E.) was a Persian-Arab historian, lawyer and Qurʾānic commentator. The Annals of the Prophets and Kings (Taʾrīkh al-rusul wa-l-mulūk) by al-Ṭabarī is one of the most important historical works about the first centuries of Muslim society in Arabic. The classic Brill edition, originally titled Annales quos scripsit Abu Djafar Mohammed Ibn Djarir At-Tabari, was supervised by M.J. de Goeje. To this day the De Goeje edition remains the only edition of the Annals with extensive indices. The online edition offers the complete text along with the indices, addenda et corrigenda, glossarium, and the general introduction by the editors.
