Abstract Abū Saʿd ʿAbd al-Malik b. Abī ʿUt̠mān Muḥammad b. Ibrāhīm b. Yaʿqūb al-Ḫargūšī l-Nīšābūrī ( al-wāʿiẓ al-Ḫargūšī, d. 406/1015-16 or 407/1016), a contemporary and compatriot of the well-known Ṣūfī Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Sulamī (d. 412/1021), is well known for his Kitāb Tahd̠īb al-asrār , a Ṣūfī manual in the form of a collection of sayings of earlier Ṣūfī authorities. Ḫargūšī is known to have written another comprehensive work that is of utmost significance for the study of the classical period of mysticism, viz. Kitāb al-Lawāmiʿ . The Vatican Library owns a unique manuscript of the work that so far seems to have escaped the attention of modern scholars. The article offers a description of the Lawāmiʿ together with a detailed table of contents.
