Identifier: Or Ms 69

Scope and Contents

An exposition of the religious creeds and philosophical systems of the East. The author's name does not appear, but the work is probably attributable to Mubād-Shāh, who completed it shortly after 1063 A.H. (1653 C.E.). Comprising fifteen sections with numerous subsections, it gives a fair insight into the beliefs of the Parsis, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Muwaḥḥids (unitarians), Philosophers, Sufis (theosophists), and several others.
