Exhibition dates: October 23, 2007–February 3, 2008 The mystic writings of the Persian poet known as Rumi (1207–1273) are generally considered to be the supreme expression of Sufism, the mystical trend in Islamic thought and culture. This exhibition coincides with the eight-hundredth anniversary of the poet-philosopher's birth. On view are nearly three dozen works from the Museum's Islamic art collection—including miniature paintings, Islamic calligraphy, ceramics, metalwork, glass, and textiles created between thirteenth and the nineteenth centuries—that evoke the world in which he lived and suggest the scope of his enduring legacy.
