In a previous paper, we have analyzed the K. al-Tawarih in progress of publication. As announced, here we give account of the multiplicity of sources used in that undertaking with encyclopedic character, as done before with another work of the autor. Being a scientific and historical work, not philosophical and theological, the results of this research reveal a much higher level of erudition by the author, who is in fact a great representative of the Golden Age of the medieval Coptic-Arabic literature.
