The Poetry of the Magnificent Sage


The Nizami Ganjavi International Center of Azerbaijan, invited Dr Ismail Serageldin to give a lecture on Nizami Ganjavi, which was delivered on 3 May 2013, in the city of Ganja at the Azerbaijan State Agrarian Academy Auditorium before a distinguished audience that included 250 professors and scholars. It is worthy of note that this venue was the same historic hall in which Azerbaijan's birth was announced in 1918 as the first Democratic State in the Muslim and Eastern World where women were given the vote. This very hall also hosted Azerbaijan's Parliament.

Because many asked for the lecture to be made available to them, Dr Serageldin re-read the speech at the Studio of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, in Alexandria Egypt, on 25 May 2013 and this is the recording. The full text with references is included and will also be published in book form separately
