About this Collection
One of the greatest poets and thinkers, Nizami Ganjavi was born in Ganja, Azerbaijan in 1141 and died in 1209. While not a court poet, he was prolific and his poetry was very influential during his lifetime, and longer after.
While only a small corpus of his lyric poetry has survived, he is best known for his five long narrative poems which together are referred to as the "Panj Ganj" or "Khamsa", which are also available in the collection.
This collection was created as a fruit of the Nizami Ganjavi Ethics Symposium held in Geneva, held on the 12th and 13th of March, 2015. This symposium was organized in collaboration with the Nizami Ganjavi International Center (Baku, Azerbaijan).

About the Nizami Ganjavi International Center
The Nizami Ganjavi International Center (NGIC) was established in September 2012 to increase awareness of the works of Nizami Ganjavi, with its head office in the capital of Azerbaijan, Baku. Supported by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and Council of Patrons, guided by the International Board of Trustees, the NGIC was created with the multiple aims of preserving the reach and cultural heritage of the past, as well as encouraging and fostering current scholarship, research, cultural activity and social outreach, while producing knowledge and becoming a place of dialogue and understanding between cultures and people.
