Abstract

For the past twenty years, a project called the Middle Eastern Texts Initiative (METI) has been underway at Brigham Young University. METI publishes accessible translations of the philosophical, theological, and mystical literature of classical Islamic civilization. In this two-part post, Morgan Davis, director of the project, tells the story of the texts themselves—how and why they came to be, who wrote them, and why the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship employs the highest academic standards to translate and publish them. For more on METI, see meti.byu.edu. A new METI site will be available next month when the brand new Maxwell Institute website launches.
