This chapter discusses Sā'in al-Dīn Turka Isfahānī, whose mystical thought played a formative and fundamental role in the development of later Islamic theosophical doctrines. The focus of this chapter is on Sā'in al-Dīn Turka Isfahān's autobiographical confessions and the impressions pegged on his attitude to Sufism, and on his views on the relation of esoteric Islamic speculative thought to exoteric Muslim theology.

Keywords:   Turka Isfahānī, Islamic theosophical doctrines, autobiographical confessions, Sufism, Islamic speculative thought, Muslim theology
