The Khalili Collections (Islamic Publications)


The Islamic collection of over 20,000 items is being presented in an important 27-volume series, of which 17 are now published, and when completed will form a unique survey of the field to date.

The entire Islamic publication is being edited by Dr Julian Raby, previously a lecturer at Oxford University and currently Director of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington D.C. Under Khalili’s leadership, the most eminent academics in each field from major museums and institutions around the world have been commissioned to write the volumes. Among them are Professor Michael Rogers, former Curator of the Islamic Department at the British Museum, London, first holder of The Khalili Chair of Islamic Art at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and currently the Honorary Curator of the Khalili Collection. Professor Rogers is also one of the four scholars of Islamic art who are members of The British Academy.
