Publishing in conjunction with an exhibition at The David Collection in Copenhagen from 24 February to 15 August 2021, Fighting, Hunting, Impressing discusses the central issues relating to Islamic arms and armour: the types and the different contexts in which they were used in warfare, in hunting, and as symbols of social position. Other aspects include the roles of arms and armour in the Quran; their collection history from trophies to museum objects; their inscriptions; and furusiyya-literature – the manuals for the chivalrous Islamic warrior.
