Publisher's Description
333 Saints: A Life of Scholarship in Timbuktu­–a photographic book in English and French by Fulbright Scholar Alexandra Huddleston–tells a story of discovery: exploring a rich and beautiful African intellectual culture. The book takes the reader to a city that built its identity around a culture of scholarship and a love of books and learning.

Timbuktu, at the edge of the vast Sahara Desert, was little known in the West–except as a byword for the remote and exotic–until militant Islamist groups destroyed many of its religious shrines and ancient manuscripts in 2012. This hauntingly beautiful book captures a way of life and learning as it was shortly before the Islamists overran the city. These photographs depict a moment in time now almost gone, fading into history. They show a culture of moderate Islam that is under threat: a deeply rooted, ancient Islamic tradition of tolerance, erudition, and faith.
