The book contains the German translation of ʿAmmār al-Baṣrī’s Kitāb al-Burhān (pp. 9–86) and a study that deals with the rhetoric background of the book (pp. 87–171). The Nestorian, ʿAmmār al-Baṣrī, following the tradition of the Greek Church Fathers, presented all his views about the questions of the Christian-Muslim religious discussions during the famous “Baghdad dispute” having resorted to the convincing methods of Greek rhetoric. These methods, through religious discussions, have been integrated into the scientific, mainly theological, literature of Islam.
