‘Understanding after ambiguity’

Yūḥannā ibn Sawīrus

Date: Unknown, but before Kitāb al-ʿilm wa-l-ʿamal

Description

The work is no longer extant. Yūḥannā mentions it several times in Kitāb al-ʿilm wa-l-ʿamal, and it would seem that it was a theological/apologetic work, defending Christian doctrines from Islamic challenges.

Significance

Nothing can be said without more information about the work.
