Claude Addas, a prominent scholar of Islam, is known for her significant contributions to the field of Ibn Arabi studies. She is the daughter of Islamic scholar Michel Chodkeiwicz and holds a degree in Arabic and Persian. Addas authored the book “Ibn ʻArabī, ou, La quête du soufre rouge” in 1989, a biography of Ibn Arabi, which later became “Quest for the Red Sulphur: The Life of Ibn ‘Arabi” in English. Her work is considered one of the most thoroughly documented accounts of Ibn Arabi’s life. Addas also wrote “Ibn Arabî et le voyage sans retour,” translated as “Ibn ‘Arabi: The Voyage of No Return.” Her profound understanding of Ibn Arabi’s ideas and meticulous analysis of his works provide valuable insights into the major doctrines of this influential Sufi master. Her contributions to the study of Islamic mysticism have earned her recognition as Ibn Arabi’s preeminent Western biographer.
