We are happy to record the appearance of the 2nd volume of the Nurbakhsh Encyclopedia, which is devoted to Love, and all its corollaries, that is, it covers the most important aspect of Persian mystical poetry. As in the first volume, every concept is explained not only by verses from the classical Persian poetry, but also by prose treatises, and even a scholar who has worked in this field for a long time will appreciate the subtle nuances of apparently synonymous words.
