Abu’l-Fazl ‘Allami and the Persian Translation of the Mahabharata
Series:Beyond Boundaries 1
Aims and Scope
In 1587, Abū’l-Fazl ibn Mubārak – a celebrated favourite at the Mughal court and author of the Akbarnāma – completed his Preface to the Persian translation of the Mahābhārata. This book is the first detailed study of Abū’l-Fazl’s Preface. It offers fresh insights into manuscript practices at the Mughal court, the role a Persian version of the Mahābhārata was meant to play, and the religious interactions that characterised sixteenth-century India.
