Författare: Muhyiddin Ibn ‚Arabi.
Der Anqa Mughrib (der Sagenhafte Greif des Westens) ist das bedeutendste Frühwerk Ibn Arabis. Verfasst wurde es in einer Zeit des persönlichen Umbruchs, als sich der Größte Meister entschloss, seine Heimat Andalusien zu verlassen und gen Osten zu ziehen. Die überragende Bedeutung des Anqa und seine Originalität bestehen darin, dass Ibn Arabi sein inneres Wissen um das Siegel der Heiligen (Jesus) mit seiner fundamentalen Idee des Vollkommenen Menschen verbindet und diese Synthese in einer mitreißenden poetischen Vision ausgestaltet. Eine Vision, die man in der damaligen Zeit keineswegs offen aussprechen konnte:
„Und hätte ich nicht das Gelübde abgelegt, über [das heilige Geheimnis] eifersüchtig zu wachen und wäre dessen Offenlegung keine Verletzung, so hätten wir dir sicher [das Siegel der Heiligkeit] in seinem äußeren Gewand und seiner inneren Form offen gezeigt.“
Die im Anqa verwendete Sprache arbeitet mit Anspielungen, Metaphern und entzückenden poetischen Bildern, mehrere zum Teil geheimnisvolle Gedichte sind in den Haupttext eingebettet. Dieses erstaunlich reichhaltige Werk liegt nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Übersetzung vor. Eine ausführliche Einleitung des amerikanischen Forschers Gerald T. Elmore sowie zahlreiche Fußnoten und Anmerkungen erleichtern den Zugang zu den verborgenen Bedeutungsebenen des Textes.
Not everyone who has found happiness is accorded perfection, for while all who are perfect are happy, not every happy one is perfect. Perfection means reaching and joining with the highest degree, and that is assuming the likeness of the Source. Ibn ʿArabi comprehensively summarises all his major teachings on human perfectibility and true happiness. Using the imagery of alchemy and ascension, he gives the reader an extraordinary insight into the spiritual journey by contrasting two ways of acquiring knowledge: the rational and the mystical.

Winkel’s fine translation as much as I have reading the original Arabic text, and I have no doubt that a work such as this conveys the flavor and sense of Ibn ʿArabī’s grand vision, which was given to him as a gift from God. A new period of Ibn ʿArabī studies is opening up in the world with this translation of his major work, the most important source ever produced, in my opinion, for the study of the sciences of Sufism, a universal and everlasting reference point for those who explore their inner experiences in search of the meaning of Reality.

Hüseyin Şen, a Turkish PhD student at Utrecht University, realised that two manuscripts in the Lawrence J.
Schoenberg collection of the University of Pennsylvania’s Rare Books and Manuscripts Library were ones stolen from the Yusuf Ağ Library in Konya. Speaking to the press, Şen said his wife was interested in Ottoman bird houses and he had been helping her in her studies when he found one of the manuscripts described in the University of Pennsylvania catalogue. It included details about the date of the book and the number of lines per page. This triggered something in his memory, and he went to a Turkish government website and searched for information about manuscripts stolen from Konya. A total of 103 manuscripts and seven books were stolen from Konya in 2000, also the covers of 64 rare books. The Konya Manuscript Library Manager Bekir Şahin said that the people who stole the manuscripts divided a book into two, and using stolen covers, sold it as two different books.
