Abstract

06-reviews 10/29/02 10:31 AM Page 693 Reviews 693 also in his insistence that the faith of humble believers be honored even though their understanding may be deficient and their practice defective (3, 54, 291). All of this is evidence that the process of assimilation had its lim- its, that at least some elements of the larger Jesus tradition made their way into Islam despite the existence of a certain tension between the two. The presence of a certain ambivalence is one of the striking features of the Mus- lim gospel. Without question, Khalidi’s study is an important contribution both to the study of Islam and to the study of the Jesus tradition. It goes well beyond two earlier studies by D. Margoliouth, published in English in 1896, and by Miguel Asin, which appeared in Latin in 1919. Asin, the author of the larg- er of the two studies, succeeded in identifying 225 logia. Khalidi’s study, by contrast, adds to the corpus nearly a hundred new sayings. Important as Khalidi’s achievement is, then, it can hardly be said to be exhaustive or com- prehensive for one simple reason: too much of medieval Islam’s literary lega- cy remains unpublished.
