The Kitāb Anbā’ nujabā’ al-abnā’ (Reports on Sons of Noble Breed) written by Ibn Ẓafar al-Ṣiqillī, the Sicilian (died between 1170 and 1172), collects the biographies of illustrious men, recounting their youth in detail through many and precious anecdotes. My analysis of this text, a work that up until now has been investigated very little, seeks to identify the organizational model of the material, its aims with regard to the historical–political context of the time, as well as highlighting differences and peculiarities in comparison with the same typology of texts produced in other geographical areas of the Muslim world and in Sicily in the Medieval era.
