Wensinck’s Concordance will continue to play its role as an essential research tool for all those who are concerned with the Tradition literature of Islam. More than forty years of international academic team-work resulted in a key to that highly diverse and far from homogeneous corpus that constitute the canonic and most authoritative texts of Islamic Tradition, itself a major source for Islamic theology and law, and in addition, a gold mine of information on the history of ideas in the formative period of Islam. Under the guidance of Wensinck and his successors many thousands of pages of sometimes ill accessible works were indexed and an enormous amount of catchwords were recorded together with their context to produce an extraordinary book involving three generations of scholars.
