This chapter provides an overview of sources in Arabic. It studies medieval Arabic narrative sources that deal with the period 1025–1204, and presents a survey of medieval Islamic prosopographical material, which includes autobiographical and biographical literature. An analysis of the present state of research on Islamic prosopography is also included. Certain ancillary sources, i.e. inscriptions, are mentioned here. Ancillary sources are considered to be useful prosopographical tools.
