pp. 48 f. — Prince sleeps with a ʿorpse: somewhat differently in Ibn Bābōya, Kamāl al-dīn 354.

p. 73 —The term istidrāj comes from surahs 7/182 and 68/44. Cf. also Fritz Meier, "Zur Biographie Ahmad-i Ğām's"; Qūt 1/261 bot.; Riʿāya 272; Sharḥ al-Ḥikam 1/73; Iḥyāʾ 4/115, al-Rukn al-thālith min kitāb al- shukr.

The story is recounted in greater detail in TA 1/54, where the river involved is the Tigris. Also in a different form in Abc'I-Ḥasan alDaylamī, Sīrat al-shaykh al-kabīr Abū ʿAbd Allāh ibn al-Khafīf al- Shīrāzī, ed. Annemarie Schimmel-Tari, Ankara 1955, pp. 118–19.

p. 162 — Ḥassān's pulpit: Iḥyāʾ 2/252, Bayān al-dalīl ʿalā ibāḥat al-samāʾ.

p. 184 — As Fritz Meier notes, it is better to understand the word maghfūrī as an adjective: i.e. fashioned by the late (master) so-and-so. The object in question is probably a rug rather than a porcelain bowl.
