Some extracts of the above first appeared in The Guardian (February 6, 2003): 24 of which copyright permission has been obtained. I thank Francis Robinson and Farrokh Vajifdar for their editorial comments. Annemarie Schimmel's American colleagues, some of whom have been my teachers, shared rich reminiscences: I am grateful to Richard Frye, Merlin Swartz, Wheeler Thackston Jr. and John Williams. The inspiration for this necrology came from my teacher Herbert Mason who peppered my directed study seminar on Islamic history with vignettes of Schimmelia.
