Notes

A Sufi mystic of high renown.

Taught a theology/cosmology very close to that found in the LP BOLIGHT, which is the divinity of humanity.

Was a threat to the ruling classes. "But it seems safe to assume that this notion was perceived threateningly by the political authorities. Although the exact reason is not known, Ibn al-' Arabi was forced to flee Cairo in 604/ 1207 when he was threatened with mortal danger on account of his doctrines."[2]
