Synopsis

‘Abd al-Rahman al-Bastami (d. 1454) was born in Antioch, studied in Cairo and settled in Bursa, where he remained until the end of his life. His works -all in Arabic – cover a wide range of subjects. Some relate to the classification of the sciences. Most of his works are not printed. It seems the only work of al-Basṭāmī that has been printed appears to be Manāhej al-tawassol fī mabāhej al-tarassol, a work of adab containing forty-six anecdotes (laṭāʾef), each with an edifying moral. It was published in Cairo in 1299/1882 in the margins of Ṣalāḥ-al-Dīn Ṣafadī’s Janān al-jenās. Finally, al-Basṭāmī has some works of necrology and chronology.
