Presented for convenience as a separate data set, the Glossary is an invaluable source of information for both the non-specialist, who is given an insight into the varied and rich vocabulary of Islam, and the specialist, who may discover surprising new contexts in which a term is being used. Links to EI entries and suggestions for related content are also provided. The Index of Subjects and Index of Proper Names are forthcoming..
